  • 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.

  • So prove yourself wrong. Get out there and do it!

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

  • lots of water and good sleep and you'll be back on track

  • 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!

  • Phew... smashing... not necessary..just running and squishing the gremlins:)

  • Ignore your negative voice.. listen to the small on that is saying...just do can... you will feel so much better.. and then slow and steady out you go :)
