This week was ROUGH. I experienced wanting to quit and questioning why I even bothered starting to run. A lot of this stemmed from having a cold. I felt sick, weak, and frustrated. I felt like I was losing progress. It certainly didn’t help that while I was running, I felt lightheaded and sleep-deprived. A mile was a struggle. I wanted to QUIT.
This was a really difficult thing for me to overcome. I’m the type who would rather not do something than fail at it. That is the WORST attitude to have, but I’m also extremely insecure, which contributes to that notion. Anyway, I pushed through it and the next couple days have been good runs. Since August 1st, I’ve run just over 30 miles. I know some people run that in a week, but I think that is decent for a little over a month, especially coupled with being sick for the last week and a half!
My sister is visiting for the next five days. Honestly, I’m a little nervous because we’ll be running together and I know she is WAY better than me! 🙂 I guess that isn’t what matters though. I just hope she doesn’t think I’m terrible at it!
