During the first few weeks of C25k I was positively excited about going out for a run. However I am finding week 7 REALLY hard! It probably doesn’t help that due to other stuff going on. I’ve only done two runs/week for the last two weeks (so weeks 6 and 7 are taking me longer).
However this morning when the alarm went off at 6.30am it took me a full 29 minutes to pull my running stuff on and get out there… I was greeted by cold fog and general dampness. Ugh. I also decided to abandon Laura and the peppy running songs and listen to Radio2 breakfast show with beeps every 5mins (from iphone app - cyclemeter) so I knew how much running I had done. This was ok – but overall I was slower possibly as a result of lower bpm songs and lots of talking AND hills (week 6 run 3 and week 7 run 1 done on the flat).
HOWEVER I did it; and I kept going and now, I feel GOOD! I am so pleased that I did it even tho I found it hard. I am committed to my next run being on Saturday so I can keep up the momentum and finish week 7! Yay! Woooo! Perhaps I can motivate myself if I make enough positive noises!!
