So, the thing that is halting my running progress is, without a doubt, my gremlins. Does anyone have advice on just how you beat them? My run today was ok - I'm not beating myself up about it because I've been ill - but I firmly believe it's my mind that is the problem, not my actual fitness. I plan to start aiming for a 10k once I've got the next two weeks (triathlon) out of the way and I believe my body, with the correct training programme, is capable of 10k. BUT, in order to do this I have to strengthen my mind! I don't get it - professionally I've achieved everything I've ever set my mind to but running.............not so!
