The only think that made me go run today was the accountability I feel to this forum!
My previous run was horrendous... I just couldn’t keep going... I kept walking and stopping and trying again and sobbing... I had to go for 4 and a half miles to actually get in my full non stop 30 min run... and the only reason I actually did it is because I found a very long and massive hill to run down... 😱 I mean I’m not even sure that counts!
Was supposed to run yesterday but just put it off.
It’s taken all morning to drag myself out and although I’m glad to have actually got out there and kept going till the 5k mark - after such a horrendous previous run; it just felt terrible the entire way... every second of every minute felt awful. I didn’t enjoy it in the slightest - and don’t even feel good post run... in actual fact I’m 150% more grumpy!! 🤷🏻♀️
I don’t get how some runs can feel so enjoyable and then others can feel so terrible. Especially when stats wise they appear pretty much identical... 🤔
Either way, I’m fighting desperately not to lose my motivation post C25K but certainly finding it a struggle. I consistently ran every other day throughout the programme without fail (minus my sisters wedding). I don’t seem to have the same drive to do this post C25K. I still don’t feel confident enough to go and do park run, even with the great advice and words of wisdom from everyone. Even though I know it will probably be such a big positive and step forwards for me.
Does it get easier?!
Soz about the not so positive post! 😳
Jeeeeez, I hope I get over this mental barrier soon!!
