Went out today (Thursday) intending to do run 2 of week 8 - started off with laura for five minutes then went to my own music ran for ten minutes. Had to stop and wallk. In fact this was the pattern for the entire session which ended up being almost an hour!
I thought that having four days withiout running would have given my legs a rest after a disastrous attempt at run 1 on saturday afternoon - no in fact it was worse almost like a beginner starting to learn to run.
The big question is do I go back and repeat week 6 and build back up to week 8 or do I try again on saturday with run 3 of week 8?
I dont want to give up but felt a bit of a failure as I had managed to run 25mins over a week ago albeit on the treadmill. My big mistake I think was not doing run 2 and 3 on monday and wednesday on the treadmill as I have done for the previous weeks - the weather was partly to blame and I was still feeling demollarised from failing to complete run 1 of week 8; feel even worse now.
