Unsucessfull. I ran only 2 km (about 14 minutes) on Run 3. And then I stopped because I felt a stomach ache coming. It wasn’t too bad but I couldn’t get myself to continue running. I thought I’d walk for a minute, but in the back of my mind already knew I won’t start running again (That probably was the problem).
All in all I only managed the 28 minutes of Week 8 once – and that with a break(s) and only just the 28 minutes. The other times were around 18 minutes, and today the 14.
Yesterday I thought I'll to in the morning, because it was still hot at 9pm. Today I got up really early and was out of the house at 7.10. The weather was still cool and I thought it will be a good run.
What is it with the longer runs that I cannot keep my motivation up!?
As much as it frustrates me (and holds the potential of having to run Week 9 in even hotter wheater) I'll redo Week 8 next week. I use in moving on if I haven't really done the 28 minutes (except one big exeption on W7/R3), right?
