Last week I went from being on a high from running week 6 run 3 to then week 7 run 1 and hitting what felt was and is a massive mental (which led to physical brick wall) block. I ran the first 12 1/2 minutes turned to come back and I had to keep going into brisk walk mode.
Run 2 of that week I thought change route and change of scenery will be good but no same again...run 3 same. Unlike a previous week though I'm determined not to use the "f" word. Instead I will keep persevering with week 7 until I do it. I have learnt that it's not the time it takes to get to c25k or the speed in which I do it but for me it's about not giving up and carrying on.
After the first run of week 7 I developed a migraine that lingered all week. My body also ached and some life stuff that happens but I'm not making excuses. What I did was still get up don my running shoes and got out there...I am sure there is a mental block going on and I'm determined to beat it...I don't know how long or how but I will somehow, someway
This is a journey I will conquer and I have to keep reminding myself that seven weeks ago I couldn't run a minute now I can run twelve and a half (even though thenweeks before I ran 20 minutes and 25mins), I didn't stop but went into bursts of brisk walk when I could've give up and that I will do it!!!
