So I have a bad gremlin that comes with me on every run. He sits on my shoulder and tells me I cant possibly run 28 minutes- its impossible, my breathings all wrong, my hips hurt, my knees hurt, my trainers dont feel right etc etc. Up to now on every run I've managed to ignore him but today he won and I had my first fail
I had to stop within 5 minutes for a couple of seconds [never done that before] and it just felt harder than ever today. I managed to do about 21 or 22 minutes and I just couldn't facerunning the upward slope home and so I walked the rest.
It really is a mind game and for some reason 28 minutes is killing me. I could do 25 but the extra 3 minutes seems to be a real issue! I did it on Saturday and was so proud of myself but today it just wasnt happening.
I am soooo cross with myself. I spent yesterday looking forward to my run and I really wanted to finish week 8 and get on to week 9 on Friday as I am doing a Race for Life next Sunday.
So will have a rest day tomorrow and try again on Wednesday.
