I'm in a bit of a pickle, and I don't know if it's just a collection of bad omens preventing me from completing it, but that's twice I've now been unable to complete W8R2. R1 was great, felt good and felt very achievable. However, I went away camping and hiking last week, and did no running. I tried to do R2 last night, and managed less than 4 minutes of running before calling it off and going straight home. Tonight, I attempted it again, vowing to do it 'properly', but managed 12 minutes before walking. I completed the 28 minutes alternating running and walking, but it wasn't comfortable. None of the usual mantras helped, and I'm feeling pretty discouraged!
I imagine it was any one of the heat, the hiking, lack of proper sleep, lack of proper food, Mars in retrograde, etc. etc.. Still doesn't stop me feeling down. Part of me wishes I'd just stayed home and stuck to the programme!
