I made my W5R3 the end of last week. I can't believe I ran a full 20 minutes!!!! I so felt like a runner! I was extremely tired, but I kept telling myself to keep moving and to not quit. The gremlins were patrolling in full force! I had excuse after excuse to not do the run: I was ill that day with a cold, it became dark earlier, it started to thunder and sprinkle...I just wanted to get it over with to prove to myself I could and I did it!!! Fast forward to W6R1, little miss smarty pants AKA me, knowing I just did 20 minutes on the last run is convinced she can breeze through the first run of week 6. Ha, ha, I laugh at you little 5 minute run, 8 minute run and 5 minute run...they kicked my a**!!! What the heck? I truly believe Run 1 of Week 6 is to bring you right back to reality that you are only mid-way in the program and still have a ways to go. I am so happy I read others had problems with this run too or I would be feeling completely deflated. As others continue to say, it is in the mind now, so much more then physical, I believe I prepped myself for the 20 minutes, KNOWING I would get through it. I should of prepped myself better for the run in week 6. I am already trying to prepare myself for run 2 tomorrow night. At what point does this actually become fun instead of misery?
