So I finished week 3 last Friday and I was really looking forward to progressing onto week 4 (halfway!!) even though I was just about managing to keep going for 3 minutes, I wanted to give week 4 my best shot.
Monday came rushing around and we started Week 4. I did the first 3 minutes then surprised myself and managed the first 5!! (although I was snail slow by the last minute). I was getting warm by this point so I took my hoodie off. In doing so, I knocked my ipod and skipped to the next podcast! Instead of trying to get the right place again Trace said she'd shout out when to run, walk and how long we've got left. I carried on listening to the podcast I'd skipped to (week 5) as I don't have any music on this ipod, did the next few intervals and then got onto the last five....
After minute 4, I just couldn't do it. I STOPPED and I was and still am gutted
It really annoys me because I don't know why I stopped. My left leg hurt when I landed on it but it was more than bearable and with a minute left I should've carried on, but I just stopped.
Not having the correct podcast on didn't help. When Laura said we had 1 minute left of the five on my ipod, we actually had 2 1/2 left and I think psychologically that made me not want to run anymore.
Now, I'm a positive person and I know we're all destined to have bad runs or not complete the full running times but with this being the first time I haven't ran fully, I'm peeved - I don't want this to be the start of a trend and I'm dreading run 2 of week 4 tonight.....I'm normally running out the door in excitement
