Last night I completed the run for week 6 run 2, and I couldn't really believe how well it went. All the way around I kept thinking to myself 'when is the pain and suffering going to kick in!?' but it never came. I think it was due to me mentally setting myself up to take things slow through the run. I paced myself well and started off slowly, only picking up a little speed when I finished the first ten minutes and it felt like I'd only run 3! It's not stopped me dreading the next run though, a full on 25 minutes... really not sure if I can do that yet! It makes such a difference when you don't have that chance to stop and catch your breath. Fingers crossed!
