I'm doing this on a treadmill and did something today that I haven't even been tempted to do before - got 7 minutes into the run, hit the stop button and bailed out completely.
I wasn't in the mood, felt tired and breathless and really just couldn't be bothered. The real problem, though, is that this has been coming on for a while. I got through the dreaded W5R3 20 minutes, but it was hard work and I was gasping by the end of it. Each run this week has just been a drag. My big worry is that with the longer runs I'm just starting to find it really......boring .
I know using a treadmill doesn't help, but I'm using it for good reason. The road I live on isn't great (single track, unlit, popular rat run for drivers) and I know myself well enough to know that if I have to drive anywhere to run I'll give up eventually. Also, I know myself well enough to know that I would use bad weather as an excuse and end up not running over the winter. Hence the treadmill.
Everybody posting here seems so positive about it, so I feel bad saying that I find it dull. Has anybody else found this? More to the point, has anybody else gone through a phase of finding it dull, but got through it and started to enjoy it again? I'd love to hear from you!
