I am about to go on my week 7 run 2 this evening and I absolutely hate running. The last 2 long runs I have hated every single minute up until the last 5 minutes. I somehow pick up the pace and feel ok and the aches and pains subsided. However from minutes 7-18/20 I am forcing myself to continue.
I thought by this point I would be enjoying it a bit more but I’m not. Is there anyone who runs and still hates it? or is it just me?
What is it about running that you hate? Do you listen to any music 🎵 that you like to take you mind of running 🏃♀️ Have you tried podcasts. Running 🏃♀️ is like meditation for so many people. Are you using the C25K app or C25K podcast as most people get tired of listening to the music from the C25K podcast.
I enjoy running because it gives me freedom and alone time. Running is not a punishment, so if you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it do something else.
I think it’s the pain in my legs. My breathing is pretty consistent. I was listening to music. Tried something a bit more upbeat and did get a bit further than usual but not the best distraction. I think I try the podcast. I currently have Laura for the app. Thank you
