It Should Not Be This Hard

Just got back from my run and am feeling frustrated.  I know it does no good to be mad at myself, but today, I am.  Since my miserable half marathon in October, my running has been inconsistent (and at times, nonexistent).  I wasted well over three months and lost a ton of fitness.  And in the midst of all of that, I actually had the gall to sign up for a 24 hour endurance race.  To that, today, I say WTF.

I know that I am far stronger mentally than I was when I first started running, but physically, I feel like I'm right back there.  Today, I ran two miles and it was hard.  And I wasn't even trying to push the pace. But I struggled.  For that, I have no one to blame but myself.

Fortunately, I don't have time for a pity party. I've got too much work to do.



Oh, and for anyone who's keeping track, I did my 7 burpees today.  I need to find some other place to do them, though.  The rug we have in our living room moves every time I do one and it's just awkward. Makes me feel like I'm making the earth shake with my heft.  LOL

  1. 2 miles is further than a lot of people will run today (or any day!!!)!! And, doing burpees very day is no joke!!!

    1. I know. And I need to remind myself of that - that at least I'm doing SOMETHING.

  2. just keep moving and you will be back to running form in no time. No shame in walk/run until you get your stamina back..we've all been there :) I took two months off and I am just starting to feel like I may not die next month for my half. :)

  3. Any number of miles is better than no miles. Lots of people would be thrilled with that--just keep at it!
