I did it. I ran for 25 minutes today! It took five attempts, but today I did it.
The other times something was wrong. Wrong music, wrong audiobook (audiobook in general was a stupid idea. But I thought giving me something to listen to would make it easier), wrong weather (stupid heat), wrong breathing (stitch), wrong something.
But today it was so good! I had my own playlist with upbeat songs and it went really well! I didn't think "Oh god, that's loooong!" or "okay, stop now?" once during the first 15 minutes. The next 5 were a bit more difficult, and by the time MapMyRun announced the 20min mark I had "Only 5 minutes! That shouldn't be too hard" in my head. And I did it!
The music played a good part, but having two restdays probably helped too.
I'm really proud right now. I will do three 25min runs next week, and then start with week 8. I hope, I can keep the 25 minutes up. But now that I know what kind of music I need, it should be a lot easier.
I need to sing along in my head. Luckily I'm not able to sing out loud (or even hum), but a runner passed me who was singing out loud. Made me smile. Way to show you enjoy your run!
