So, I set out this morning in the wind and the rain to start week 8 of the programme. Oh my god, it was so hard! I hit the proverbial wall so many times and at one point I stopped running and walked for about 10 seconds before I started running again. I've never done that before. I kept telling myself FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION and somehow I carried on but I hated every second. My legs felt like jelly afterwards. I honestly don't know how I will be able to run for 30 minutes, I'm so close to the finishing line, I'm going to try, but I just don't know if I have enough stamina to do it.
