Maybe I wasn’t hydrated enough, too tired, sun too bright, warm up walk needed to be longer, maybe I was just overthinking this one… I have been trying to tell myself why I just couldn’t do the full 20 mins today.
I’m going to try again at the weekend. 5 mins in to the run, my head started to tell me I just wasn’t up to it tonight. I slowed to a walk and started telling myself off- picked up to a run again about 30 seconds later. Again, at around the 10 and 15 mins marks, I felt I needed to walk and did! To be honest, I almost cut off the track to just walk home, but I told myself that was ridiculous and I should keep trying!
I was so excited after managing 8 minutes twice last Sunday so thought I’d be able to push myself through this one.
I’m telling myself I haven’t failed, that perhaps I just wasn’t up for it tonight. I completed the time I just didn’t manage the full amount of running time.
Jo was congratulating me for running for certain amounts of time and (out loud) I told her “no I haven’t!” I’m quite disappointed in myself.
Any tips for making it though my second attempt on Saturday? I’m determined I will succeed!!
