Week five was a week worth of walking; a combination of the high temperatures and stress levels on the increase in general areas of my life had me feeling like giving up on the training plan.
A mixture of the past cutting into the present, tempting me to revert to laziness.
I walked daily, six days out of seven, and each time I felt the benefit to my mental health. There were times I wanted to stay indoors, in bed and do nothing. It was interesting to see how much energy goes into feeding a negative mindset instead of the positives.
On another note, I realised my running tights feel a little looser than usual. Which on a typical day, I would’ve been feeling happy at the 2lb weight loss. However, I found it annoying as I kept having to stop and pull up my running tights.
I mean, where do I find suitable running gear? It fits great for a few months, then slides down my body as if I’ve lost two stones instead of 2 lbs.
Slow progress is better than no progress.
