Just under 2 weeks ago I started w7 but unfortunately had to rest up due to an ankle injury.
I planned all weekend to go for a run but I just did not have the motivation. Not even seeing the wonderfull achievements by Jess ,Mo and everyone could not spur me.
I then started thinking maybe this wasn't for me afterall. Maybe over the last few weeks I had deluded myself into thinking I was a runner. My inner demon kept saying I could not go back to running and I started to believe that it was all over.
This morning I started to read the blog posts (I have been avoiding readin them) and I started to feel inspired again. I thought that I'd give it one more go and see where I get to. I decided to redo week 6 so as to gauge where I was.
As I was doing my 5 min walk warm up, my demon kept saying that I would be lucky to run 2 mins. In my first minute I listened to it and thought "no way can I do this". Then I thought about the blogs & how I missed reading them and then started thinking about how much I love running ..... Then I gave my inner demon a great big shove and stamped on it for good measure! I did the run comfortably and I'm looking forward to carrying on with my obsession!!! And tomorrow I'm going to have my running gait analysed so to ensure no more injuries. And as for the demon hopefully he has done a runner!
