My re-run of W2R3 completed, yipee!!: the last run still felt like hard going, but just about managed to get there. Already worrying now about how I can possibly do a 3 minute run in the W3 programme.... I know I did it before, on my first time round these early weeks before my "falling off the cliff" (not literally you'll be pleased to know, just falling off that cliff in my mind!) but the gremlins are already ganging up on me in advance of my W3R1 session on Wednesday. I'm thinking of giving Laura the day off on Wednesday and using a timer I've got, with music better suited in beats/minute to my running steps (timed beats music off jog fm). I wonder if being able to pound down my feet in time to the beat will stop me thinking so obsessively about time, or else repetitively counting 1-2-3-4 or even 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 to myself to help keep going. What do you think, guys? Give Laura the day off or ask her to come with me?
