Hi & Welcome :-)

I hope members will see your post & say hello :-)

It sounds like you have been going through a lot over the last couple of years & it is always hard to leave a relationship even when it has been an abusive one but well done for doing so :-)

I can understand though that now having done that you want to get your life back on track , start afresh which is all good & the right thing to do , but was wondering if maybe the problem is you are setting your goals to high

I know I can do this & as they are then a little out my reach for that moment in time I do not achieve them which then makes me feel a failure which then makes me feel down & also I totally forget all the positive things that I have achieved & how well I have done

Maybe for now you could put this on hold , start with something which is more tailored to how you are feeling at the moment & as you succeed ( which you will ) your self esteem will build up slowly & eventually you will be ready to do the 25k

Make a plan , keep it simple , even if it is going for a 10 minute run or even 5 minute run per day & feel good about yourself when you have done that :-)

Not sure if this will have helped , some other may have some more suggestions :-)
