After indulgences...advice please

hi, I am on week 8 second run and its all gone pear shaped. Trouble is I really went to town on 50th celebrations and left a day to recover, so when I went out I couldnt run more than 10 minutes day beofre yesterday now I am gearing myself up to do week 8 run 3 yet I feel like putting it off because I feel so heavy and incapable . Advice please as I feel will fall off the wagon, so proud of where I got to been steady and not missed one run before...feeling strangley negative

have a stern word with yourself and get out there and run. You are a grown up now.

No! Don't stop - we all have bad runs, negative feelings etc - I'm sure the next run will be better. Just remember how great it feels when you have nailed it.

You'll be fine. Think positive, be glad you enjoyed the celebrations at the time, and go out there and run it.

Thanks Guys

I smashed it !well it was a real head battle and to be honest took loads of recovery time my fit bit said my heart rate was up still after tens minutes but I listened to you all and yes was thankful for the time and moved on. Seems like the head battle is the worse with me!
