This week has been hard…
Week 4 Day 1:
Repeat 11 times: jog 2 minutes and walk 3 minutes
Repeat 9 times: jog 2 minutes and walk 3 minutes
Repeat 10 times: jog 2 minutes and walk 3 minutes
On day one I felt motivated and initially strong, but started flagging towards the end.
Day two felt really difficult. I didn’t feel motivated to jog and my legs felt like lead weights.
Day three (today) I overindulged on a Chinese buffet lunch and again didn’t feel like jogging. My legs felt ok but breathing was difficult in the last fifteen seconds of each jog.
But, I did it! I’m pleased to have finished another week.
I have noticed that mental attitude seems to play a huge part with running. If you feel negative, it feels more like a struggle. I admire all you long distance runners out there, because not only are you physically strong, you must also have amazing mental endurance.
So, I would be interested to know, what do you do to maintain a positive mental attitude to your running?
