I had my first failed run this week W7R1 and felt awful. I got 5 minutes in and just stopped dead, my legs would do nothing, i didn't even walk the remaining 25 minutes. I spent the last 2 days mulling it over and realised that I hadn't actually run for nearly a week, I had completed a 10+ mile walk, had spent a weekend on real food and was moving back to my foodpacks (527 cals), in retrosepct a 25 minute run was simply too much for me to handle on top. I decided to go back to week 6 as another miserable failure would be so demotivating. I ran W6R1 this morning and it was wonderful. I remember the first time I ran it and it was awful but it was an absolute doddle this morning, when Laura said time to slow down I was shocked that it had come round so quickly. It has really given me my confidence back and taught me a lot about myself. Can't wait to check my stats with gary (the Garmin) tonight. Bring that 25 minutes
