This programme is so clever isn't it? There I was a couple of weeks ago thinking '90 seconds run - that's impossible' whereas today (WK5 R1) when I noticed I had 90 secs to run out of the 5 mins I just thought 'Oh I can do that'. The last 5 mins was tough but I did it!
With all your support (thanks!) the pre run gremlins seem to be disappearing. However, the during run ones are still there trying to make me stop!
How do you divert your minds from thinking about how much your legs hurt?! I have tried the podcast but can't keep the ear plugs in my ears. My thoughts today were a constant monologue of .... Ooh my calves hurt ...... Perhaps I'll stop ....... No I won't ...... Ooh my calves hurt....... I should stop ...... No I won't. ..........And so on.
Any advice gratefully received! X
