I genuinely genuinely mean this, it was ok!
I have been dreading this run for 6 weeks (I repeated week 4 because I couldn't complete 5mins) I have read blog after blog and genuinely had sleepless nights thinking about today's run. I had a huge fail last weekend and walked most the first 8mins, there was no way I could do 20 mins
I abandoned Laura, I couldn't cope with 10 mins left, 5 mins left 2 mins left etc. I knew roughly where I would get to and just went! I found having my own music and a stopwatch so much better, I sang to myself as I went round (aloud I think, out of tune, breatheless, thankfully it was pretty quiet!!)
I think it is mental, its like, you have to run 3 mins and that's all your going to mentally allow yourself to do, your going to run 8 mins and that's all you'll allow yourself!!
Don't dread this run, its a mile stone, and don't forget it you let ur gremlins gets the better of you, you'll only have to repeat the whole thing again!! Push through and you can forget all about the dreaded week 5!!
