... I felt so darn proud of myself after run 3 of Wk6, I handled the 25 minutes quite well (nearly bursting into song to the music at one point) & was as high as a kite when I finished.
Fast forward to today - same 25 minutes but it felt so much tougher - my legs were tired & I didn't quite cover the same distance which felt demoralising. I finished it, which is an achievement but am still disappointed that I found it so hard.
Last night watching the track events I was saddened to see a few athletes apologising & beating themselves up for not finishing in the position they would have liked, I thought what a great achievement it was just for them to be there competing at that level & they should celebrate that fact. Yet here I am today doing basically the same thing - 7 weeks ago I struggled running each 60 second burst, now I can run 25 minutes, I really should celebrate that fact instead of focusing on my disappointment today.
Any moral support or words of advice however, will be more than welcome.
