Last week - Week 4 - was a tough one for me. It wasn't tough to do the runs, but I had no burning desire to get out there and run like I'd had in weeks 1-3! No motivation, but I went out and did them just the same.
I think that I've definitely got my motivation back in my week 5 runs 1 & 2. Run 1 on Sunday was a pleasant surprise. For some reason I thought it was going to be 5 minute and 8 minute runs, so when Laura said I only needed to run 5 minutes three times it really perked me up. Then the same thing happened on today's run - I assumed it was going to be 5 minute and 8 minute runs so just doing two 8 minute runs seemed like I was getting off easy. Ha, 8 minutes runs are getting off easy? I definitely wouldn't have said that 5 weeks ago!
I'm actually looking forward to Thursday's run. That one I do know how long it is. I must be barking mad, 20 minutes of running and I'm actually looking forward to it??? I feel so proud of myself for getting this far. I can't believe I'm actually doing it!
