Yesterday I was due to do W5R3. I have found all the runs a challenge but had managed them but have really been dreading this run so much so I woke up the night before thinking about it. I went out early as I was off work, my other runs I normally do after a day at work so thought it would be easier. I have previously been so positive but on my warm up walk I was having very negative feelings that I couldn't do it, my leg was niggling so would stop me and such thoughts.
I started the jog and after what seemed like ages Laura said I had run for 5 minutes and I then lost every last positive thought and began thinking only 5 minutes there is no way I can run for another 15 my breathing wont make it my legs already really ache etc etc. I got to the point where Laura said I had been running for 10 minutes and thought I can't do this and just stopped. So in fact run less than most other runs. I then decided to try again today, as I hadn't completed the run didn't need a days rest but again as soon as she said I had run 10 minutes I gave up. I have now totally lost this mental challenge and now sure how to overcome my own mind.
Has anyone else got themselves into a mind lock and if so how did they get past it, I so don't want to give up now.
