Never thought I'd be one to come begging, but i could use a bit of advice. After feeling good about myself after every run of week 8 - like i was really getting somewhere - I've found the first two runs of week 9 a real slog.
I'm not really sure what's going on; my diet hasn't changed, my sleep hasn't changed, the weather's similar. Feel a bit like I'm going to pieces mentally during the run, and like the stamina I'd built up has deserted me. I'd been planning to stick my name down for a local ParkRun in a few weeks but now I'm not so sure.
I know there are peaks and troughs in everything, but I feel my positivity evaporating, and right as the finish line is in sight too. Anyone have advice for how to get over this? Feel a bit like apologising for being quite so self-indulgent.
