Found this really quite difficult this morning. I completed the run on the treadmill at 9.0kph my normal treadmill running speed but found it physically and mentally draining. I hid the treadmill clock and it took forever to reach the halfway warning. I then puffed away until I thought I must be getting close, looked at the clock, still over 8 minutes to go. At that point my heart sank, there was no way I could do it. Then I started thinking, six weeks behind me, that's 18 sessions. With 9 to go I am over two thirds of the way if I complete today. It will get easier the fitter I get. So head down, crack on I plugged away until the end. Blimey how much I needed to stop, the relief was ecstasy. The feeling of achievement immense. Sort of worried in case I can't recover in time to complete Thursday but I am going to do it. I have not come this far to give in. I may fail but I won't quit. Does that make sense?
