I really struggled through week 7 but week 8 run 1 was actually a little better today. I think I am finally getting my head around the fact that I just have to run now, for a long time - it's much more of a mental challenge than the early weeks.
I ran 4.4k which is the furthest I have ran so far and the extra 3mins up from last week was fine. There is quite a big hill in the middle of my run and after running up it I felt quite sick and thought I might have to stop but I carried on and it went away once I got my breathing back to normal.
I still feel like I have not got my breathing quite right - most of the time through my run it's fine I feel good but at times it gets a bit quick and I start to feel much less in control and I have to really focus to steady it. I guess it's just one of the things I'll get better at as I carry on but it doesn't feel like I have got it yet.
Not long till I graduate - ahhh!
