Help please. Really struggling with week 8 as 28 minutes feels like so much longer than 25. I've done a couple of unsuccessful week 8 runs where I haven't made the whole 28 mins so was going to drop back to week 7. When I did I found I was actually able to continue past the 25 marker and make the 28 (although it was hella hard!). I suspect it's all entirely mental but I just can't seem to get over the mental hurdle of the number 28.
I've just been out today (with W8R3 playing) and only managed 20 mins. Going for a further 8 seemed too big a mountain to climb.
Granted it's way more than I could run a couple of months ago but I'm so keen to get to week 9 and graduate (and make 30 minute runs my regular thing).
Has anyone else struggled mentally with week 8 and if so how did you get over the hurdle??
