I just completed week 5 run 2 this morning and it was so hard. I nearly stopped in the first 8 minutes. I was so close to giving up. Somehow I kept going and when I finished the next 8 minutes I promptly burst into tears. Does anyone else feel emotional after finishing a run? I was so embarrassed, thank god it was early and there was no-one else around. I am proud of myself for getting this far. My family are very proud of me and I don't want to let them down but today was the first time I thought to myself I don't know if I can do this. 8 minutes seemed an eternity. I'm dreading run 3 now. Other runs have been hard but today was the first time I nearly gave up. I really want to get to week 9 and graduate but after today's performance I'll be lucky to finish the next run.
