Stumbling block and gremlins

Supposed to be going out to do week 6 run 3 but seem to have hit a stumbling block- any excuse not to go, do the dishes, sort the washing. I went out on Sunday and ended up walking, the first run I haven't completed since week 1! Felt so fed up with myself. Anyway, I've just read through lots of posts... And I'm away to put on my trainers and get out there!

Yay ! Come on Julie, lets do this thing !

I was like that yesterday, I faffed about for ages, drinking cuppa teas and reading the paper. In the end I thought " Just do the bl**dy thing !!! "

Ended up getting 4 PB's - Result ! :-) xxx

Well done. I've just started W7 and I feel the same as you, "Do I have to?" I whine to myself but having told my wife to call for an ambulance if I'm not back in an hour I strap on Laura and head out. I find the opening music comforting, like an old friend, reminding me of several nights out on the road and it kick starts the brain to take those steps. Keep going!

You're right, I think the mistake I made last time was listening to my own music! I was out of sync without Laura 😂Much better with the familiar sound, even when I'm willing her to speak again and say I'm nearly finished!
