Argh, what a tough one! I wanted to stop almost as soon as I set out which hasn't happened so far. I gathered up all my strength and made it through to the end but it really wasn't easy. I kept thinking 'Just two more minutes then if you feel sick you can stop' but I didn't. I crawled along at a snail's pace and made it the full 25!
I went a different route today and I'm glad I did because the usual path is getting a bit boring. I went and did a couple of laps of the local park which meant I had to run along the road in full view of the traffic for a while. I didn't mind though, it wasn't that scary I just kept feeling like I wanted to stop! Not really sure why, I guess everyone has good runs and bad runs.
I'm still really proud of myself for getting this far - it may be tough but I still get a better feeling from going than not going. Once you get into your stride, there's a lot of peace to be had from just putting one foot in front of the other. There aren't many things in my life that I find to be that rewarding to complete.
Until next time...
