I finished C25K a couple of weeks ago and am not running 5k yet. I have been trying to up the time every few runs so that I am running further, but today I just felt like I'd hit a motivational wall. I am getting bored with my route, but haven't really attempted hills yet and everywhere else is a bit too hilly for my liking. I know I need to run further away from home, but each time I get to the spot where I usually turn back on myself to go home, I just can't get past it. I know it's psychological but I am really struggling. I am doing the race for life at the end of May and I really want to run it. Does anyone have any tips for me? Should I go for shorter runs and start trying hills so that I can go other places? Or should I just push through the psychological barrier and make myself run further when all I want to do is run home?!
