This forum is so positive and so supportive that I hate coming on sounding negative, but yesterday I found W9R1 the hardest yet - the middle 10 minutes were torture: not physical (my legs kept pumping) but mentally I wanted to be anywhere but doing what I was doing. Found myself breaking a routine task I do at work into minute steps as if I had to explain it to a complete novice....anything to keep those gremlins at bay! I have recently switched to listening to classical music and luckily, just when I was thinking of throwing in the towel, I clicked on an 8 minute piece that matched my cadence exactly, and that kept me going until I had only 5 minutes left and I convinced myself I'd hate having to come on here and say that I quit.
Not sure if I can face in to W9R2 tomorrow, but don't want to have it hanging over me - I really want to get to the end, but it's (self-inflicted) torture. How do people deal with those gremlins?
