Still in Malta until Saturday, have been keeping up the programme - on week 4 - and have really struggled. Managed W4R2 but really struggled in the 28c heat. Developed a blister so had to drop back to W3 to minimise the discomfort but still try to keep moving and doing something til it's healed. Joint pain and stiffness is getting worse to add to the annoyance, could barely walk around yesterday, hobbling like an old man. This has all compounded to trigger a real dip in mood - my mental health is my worst enemy and know this will just give it the ammunition it needs to kick my backside and try and defeat me before I even attempt my next run. Wanted to try and get through W4R3 today but at the moment feel absolutely beaten physically and mentally. Don't want to put it off as that will be the first time and lead to bad practice. Scared to attempt it and fail and do untold damage to my confidence and motivation. Just a wobble but can't see any positive outcome. May try a W3 run again just to try and minimise the lack of progress until my mood and joints and blister heal. Any advice or kicks up the backside welcome. X
