According to the plan, my next run should be 20 minutes without stopping. The problem is, I don’t believe at all that I can do this one. It’s too big a leap. I got my head around 60 seconds/ 90 seconds/ 3 minutes/ 5 minutes. This morning, I nearly embraced a random dog-walker after running for two 8 minute intervals. But 20 is more than 8. Lots more than 8. So much more that it is looming ridiculously big inside my head, and I am probably actually too scared to even attempt it, because I don’t cope well with failure. Even I think this is kind of pathetic.
