Attempted my W9R2 run today. (morning after I was meant to do it, = 2 rest days rather than one.) Didn't think I was going particularly fast (I'm generally content at snail's pace to ensure that I manage the full time). Despite this, by 5 minutes I was exhausted. Kept going anyway and passed the 10 minute mark, but then I came to a massively massive puddle and to avoid I had to jog up a steep hill, at which point I was panting away uncontrollably and abandoned the run for a nice sit down on a wet tree root.
First run that I haven't managed to complete once starting in the whole c25k programme!
I guess that "first" justifies this random blog post.
Not too disheartened. Found W9R1 quite doable. W9R2 flop was a combination of factors (no banana in the house, sorry Laura! lack of a water bottle, different route as I'm not at home, hill that was too much for me without the water, etc.) that caused the non-completion and I might try again this evening if I feel up to it.
