This has been an extremely difficult week for me in many ways. I'm tired, I'm fighting cold/allergy problems, the gremlins are telling me in my mind I can't do this...the list goes on and on. I ran #2 of week 6 last night and it was even worse then the #1 run. I am so ready to get out of this week and move on. Other than weeks 1 and 2 starting out, this is my least favorite week. All of the other weeks, each run I could see and feel a marked improvement. After running a full 20 last week and now going into week 6, I feel like a huge rubber-band that was pulled tight and then let go, I'm not feeling that improvement, I feel like I am not anymore improved then starting week 5. I know it is far from the truth, but those gremlins are telling me so. Last night i kept telling myself over and over: You can do this! You are a runner! One foot in front of the other! Then thanking God I have the health, determination and the strength to continue on with this journey. I kept going and finished but I honestly don't know how much more I could of done, this combined with 23 mile an hour wind with 40 mile an hour gusts. We have run 3 tomorrow night and I am hoping and praying it goes so much better since its a solid run. On a HUGE positive note: I AM IN WEEK 6 WHICH I NEVER DREAMED I COULD DO!!! This 49 year old housewife will be "jetting" past all those 20 somethings one of these days!
