I've got through the program to week 9, but now the wheels seem to be falling off. I've attempted week 9 run 1 twice now, and not been able to get through more than half of it before I'm just too exhausted to go any further. Which then leaves me feeling useless, because I did week 7 and 8 runs with no problems. This is a new week 9 problem for me.
I know I'm setting off too fast, but even telling myself that at about 5 seconds into tonights run didn't seem to make any difference at all. I needed to slow down, thought I had, then after 11 minutes (which felt like 40) I just had to stop. I'm not sure how to fix the problem though. I know I'm going too fast even when I'm running, and yet I still do it. Very disheartening, and I'm not even sure I'm going to make it to the end which is such a shame at this point. 10-15 minutes running isn't what I was managing last week, and now it feels like it's all I'm capable of. Feeling very sorry for myself!
