I completed week 6 tonight and I do actually feel great now it's done however whilst I was doing it I had various conversations in my head about my pace.
I know you're all going to tell me off and tell me I need to keep my pace slow and I do. I could manage a clear hello to a passing very fit runner who passed me so i know I'm not going too fast. BUT I feel embarrassed and so selfish conscious. I feel so slow and that I'm too slow to be running oh I know it's silly I know it is and if I was running with someone else I know I wouldn't care it's when I'm on my own I feel so self conscious when I pass people or I'm infront of people. I had to speed up a couple of times once when I got tangled up in some dog walkers and another to get over a busy road and boy did my little speed ups make me more out of puff. So I know I can't up my pace even if I wanted to. Not to sustain it for 25 mins anyway.
I did speed up at the end like sarah told me to and I do feel great now but how do I get over the feelings of not being good enough/ fast enough/ slim enough/ young enough/ fit enough etc etc. I do try to turn my music up and drown these gremlins out 😂
Sorry for the ramble
