Today I had my first ever incomplete podcast. It was my fourth attempt at Stepping Stones and today I had to give in somewhere after 15 minutes. My legs felt like lead, my chest was tight, it was ridiculously hot and I was exhausted and it felt so hard to run. I literally ran out of effort to push myself on and ended up stopping and breaking into tears.
I've managed to complete the Stepping Stone podcast but have found it quite difficult, and even though it's helping me manage my speed in my outdoor runs, I'm usually taking quite little steps to make sure I don't exhaust myself. I'm not making any progress on distance, and with today's mishap I just feel so deflated and like I'm not getting anywhere.
I'm hoping my run on Friday will restore faith in myself, but at the moment the enjoyment and satisfaction has just GONE. Gahhh
