Well pleased to say got this under my belt this morning despite the drizzle but have to say it was far more a mental run than a physical one. I'd had enough after five minutes! I watched a programme on the lovely Mo Farah recently and he was saying that when he feels like that he just tells himself that 'it's got to be done' or he'll just have to come back and do it again the next day. Now I know I'm nowhere near Mo's league but every time I've thought about stopping I remember his words and think I'll have wasted those 5 or 10 minutes or so if I stop and it keeps me going so far anyway!
WEEK 8 RUN 2 with Mo!: Well pleased to say got... - Couch to 5K
Well done Bee !
That's a really good tip from Mo isn't it ? I often say to myself on my runs " Like it or not, I am not going home until Ive done what Ive got to do " It does work , because like he says , if not, you've only got to come back and do it again . Mightve as well get it done and dusted there and then
Well done youre doing great, keep going ! xxx
Well done for seeing it through, it can be tough. I tell myself that I still have to get the same distance home whether I finish the run or stop and walk so I might as well keep running! Does it for me. I also find that two days rest really helps things settle. Good luck with the rest of it. (ps: do you keep bees by any chance?)
Thanks pollyp1. Feeling a bit apprehensive about my run 3 tomorrow. Not sure why but fingers crossed. Yes I do keep bees. In fact spent all of today extracting their honey ready for jarring and labelling later in week. Do you?
Hope the weather's better for you today Beelady , it's really mucky here!I felt nervous before virtually every run, don't know why but I never thought of it as gremlins, just me! Yes we keep bees. My husband mainly but I do the extraction and jarring. Unfortunately we haven't had any honey this so it's good to know someone has!! It's a shame, I love the way the house smells when the extractor is going.
