OMG, I thought I had this programme in the bag....... Wrong! I had quite a good week 5 run 3 and was thinking to myself that runs 1 and 2 of week 6 would be like a stroll in the park! What happened to me? I went out on Monday for run 1 and although I finished the run I didn't enjoy it at all. I told myself to put it behind me as I can't possibly have all good runs. I went out this afternoon to do run 2 and I thought it would be fine, two 10 minute runs with a three minute recovery walk in the middle.The first 10 minute run was ok but I was so glad when Laura told me that I could slow down and walk. The second 10 minute run was the worse run of the programme so far for me! My legs were like lead, my breathing became erratic, I was too hot and sweaty and I just wanted to stop. I really wanted to finish it as I've come a long way since week 1 and so I ignored the music playing in my ears and started chanting in my mind, one more step, one more step, one more step, then, keep on running, keep on running, keep on running, you can do it, you can do it, you can do it, almost finished, almost finished, almost finished and I made it! I just hope that I can manage the 25 minutes on Saturday as I'm beginning to doubt myself again. I've been reading lots of week 6 blogs and am amazed at the amount of you who struggled with week 6 as well. Wish me luck, I'm going to need lots of it!
