So the battle in the mind has kicked up a gear. Questioning why I'm going for a run when I'd much rather just chill out in front of the TV. Thinking to myself, I'm tired, do it another time. Remembering that I don't actually enjoy running anyway so what am actually trying to achieve. Plus, my leg muscles are just constantly feeling it, because they're either recovering from a run or as soon as they have recovered, I'm back out running again.
Well, despite all this mental gymnastics going on inside my head I put on my trainers and headed out into the dark.
As expected, I had a good run. A slightly tweeked route ment for a massive hill at the end and for the first time didn't struggle up it. So that's my reward and crown for tonight.
Parkrun on Saturday then it's Week 9. Graduation is so close, I can almost taste it.
Determined to get to the end of C25K but I am going to need to find my next challenge/plan pretty quickly otherwise I know my midweek runs will drop off again. The Saturday parkruns with a couple of mates will ensure I run at least once a week, but I'm not sure how well I'm going to do simply running 30mins without a reason. Especially when my body says it's tired and my mind can't be bothered.
What are some of the best follow on plans you know about?
