Oh dear I've blipped. I've fairly happily 'jogged' through weeks 1-5. Most runs fairly positive, others not so good, but have managed to get through with no major traumas and managing to feel proud of myself. I've got to week 6, run 2 and something seems to have gone horribly wrong. The thought of 8 minutes has always scared me (in fact the 5 minutes has also really scared me but that wasn't too bad). Got to the 8 minute runs this week and I lost all motivation. Wanted to stop and go home. Cried like a baby and wingeing like a wingeing thing. Just about managed to do both runs, be it as a snails pace, and thanks to long-suffering runner hubby getting me through it. However, felt totally rubbish afterwards, even when I got home and usually get the europhoric feeling. Still feeling rubbish now and want to pack it in Don't understand what's gone wrong as have been loving it up to now. Feeling like a complete failure.
