I just got back from week 7 run 3 and I have found all three runs so hard! It's not that I can't do it, I complete the runs but I have to kepp telling myself I can all the way round and I don't feel comfertable with the runs, like I could do more, as I have in previous weeks.
It's quite gruelling at this stage - never a little walk break to look forward to. Whilst I am aware that it is mind over matter and my body is capable of running the distance I am having a tough time keeping my spirits up.
By the end of 25mins I am such a mess - bright red and tired, hopeing to god I don't run into someone I know. I am a bit worried that weeks 8 and 9 are going to be the same and I am not goint to enjoy them like I have enjoyed the rest of the programme. I am contemplateing repeating a week to get my fitness up a bit - but then don't want to go backwards.
Any tips for keeping spirits up when it's hard?
