Granted, there's a difference between "not so bad" and "good," but really the only reason I'm hesitant and this exact second to say I could be "good" at running is because I'm still god-awful slow. Not as god-awful slow as I was in the very very beginning, but still solidly back of the pack. Yet I don't feel like I lumber, or lurch, or struggle. At least, not lately. Since telling my coach I wanted to "start over" with regards to my running, I feel like I'm actually doing a good job. Performing well.
It's weird. It's also fan-freaking-tastic. Now if I could just get the rest of my life to run (ha ha) so smoothly!
