W9R2...defeated by my own brain

Beautiful early morning, mist keeping it cooler than in recent days, all looked set fair for my penultimate run. Felt good until halfway, and then my resolve and self-motivation completely abandoned me and I stopped at 18 mins. This is the first time since week one that I've not finished a run. I think the distance tracker could be the problem, so I'm gonna ditch it next time, plus change the route and the playlist. Need my mojo back.

It happens now and again. You’ve had 25 successful runs. Take a rest day, or two if you want, and go again. You can do this.

A mere blip this morning in your otherwise shiny and sparkling running record. Perhaps you just needed the day off, you’ll be back on it in a blink of an eye and wearing your graduation t shirt in no time at all. Make all those changes you mentioned and keep going, you’re almost there 👍

Thanks guys :) Think I'm cross with myself more than anything.

It happens..there could be whole host of reasons why...I think many, many of us have had this feeling. So, just use this as a dress rehearsal..rest up.. maybe get some stamina and strength exercise in, and then head out again, steady and slow and relaxed:)
