Wr8R2..was the run from hell. I started off motivated to go out for my run and then it all went down hill from there. My legs felt like lead and I had a stitch from the onset, determined not to let down myself down I kept thinking I dont want to fail so close to week 9 but my brain would not switch off my negative thoughts and my mind was telling me its "ok to walk" "its raining why are you punishing yourself?" "your legs hurt give up". I continued to put one foot in front of the other and kept running and for the first time I felt that I was punishing myself and how on earth is this fun? I hated that I felt like that and then started to feel really low thinking once I had finished I probably would not run anymore because, why do something that is not fun.
Up until now I have enjoyed the challenge and have been mentally motivated on all runs. I did finish the run I didnt give up, but didnt even feel remotely pleased with myself. This was a 'runners low' for sure...at what point do we feel that runners high I have heard about?? I do plan to run again after my rest day I just hope I dont feel like that again.
