This is my first ever post. I started running about 2 months ago now with my aiming being to complete a Run for Life which I did on Sunday. Started from a base of pretty much zero but within 3 weeks could run the 5k in about 35 mins. Ran the full distance about 3 times then up it to 6k and also managed to run the whole way. They I developed a problem with my left leg which lasted for about a month before being sorted by a sports therapist last week. I kept running during this time but was never able to run the full distance and had to walk run. The problem is now sorted out and I ran the Race for Life on Sunday in a respectable 29 mins and 15 secs but I still wasn't able to run the full distance.
I now feel that I have a complete mental block about keeping going. I find myself paying more attention to thinking about when I can stop rather than thinking about making it to the end. I know that I can do the distance physically but just seem to have a total mental block. Does any one have any tips?
