I started running in January this year - my fitness level was at zero, I could barely run 50m and now I'm running 5-7.5km 4 or 5 times a week. Being young (20) it wasn't too difficult to get into shape, I'm feeling so much better for it and best of all I'm really enjoying running (mostly). I've started to take part in some 5km events and I'm running about a 30min 5km now - not super fast but considering I have started from scratch. I've signed up to run a half marathon in October (eeeek) but more pressing is a 10km that I'm running in a month's time.
I've not run 10km yet and I'm petrified that I wont be able to! The past week I've had 4 horrible runs, one 7.5km and the others 5kms and they were really really hard work- I just wanted to stop and kept thinking 'I can't do this!'. I feel I just need a bit of inspiration and some tips to get me over the 'needing to stop' and to help continue past the 7.5km mark! Thanks
