I nearly didn’t finish this run as I was ready to quit at mile 5 but I persevered. The weather was fine not raining (my favourite running weather) but sunny and cold which is nice at this time of year!
However I just was not feeling it today. Normally around mile 4/5 something kicks in and I feel like I can run and run, but today no can do. That feeling never came. I just kept on reminding myself that one foot in front of the other brings you closer to home and that became my mantra until I pressed the stop button on my runkeeper app and happily stopped running. Now I’m done though I’m very glad I did it and more than ever looking forward to my next challenge the Great South Run in 2 weeks time!
