At my last Confession, the Priest gave me a penance that I have found hard to accomplish. Should i just tell him that i can't do it at my next Confession?

I haven't been on here for a few years but I still love you folks.

I would definitely bring it up the next time you go to confession; if at any time the priests gives you a penance you find difficult/unreasonable/whatever you can tell him why you feel that way and ask for a different penance. It's important to complete the penance as soon as possible, preferable as soon as you leave the confessional. This is just from my own experience; others may have a different take.

Glad you went! It's a great sacrament.
