OK, so I can run for 25 minutes, which is great, but mentally I'm struggling to get past week 7. I have done 6 runs at week 7 so far.
I want to run; I get my gear on, including my new fluorescent jacket and what I like to call my 'go-faster socks'. I prepare jog.fm for music and mapmywalk for timings and off I go. I run for about a minute or two then I start looking forward to the point at which I can stop.....!
What's that all about? Does it get any easier? I mean, I know its not meant to be that easy or I wouldn't be burning the calories, but the mental effort is tough sometimes.
Friday was a hard run, I barely managed 20 minutes and not all at once. My gremlin is nagging me hard, I must find a way to ignore him!
I plan to run my alternative route today, and if I successfully run for 25 minutes today I will move on to 28 for my next run. I have Laura in mind telling me that I CAN do it. I AM ready after the training I have done so far.
