Well… todays 25-minute run definitely didnt go as well as Monday’s. This evening I had to stop FOUR times during it. Another side stitch… and once I stop.. well its all over from there. Its like opening Pandora’s box to frustration and defeat.
I know I didn’t get defeated and that I’m still pretty early on in my life non-walking/slightly-running/mostly-jogging, but man… is it frustrating. Especially when I’m driving home from work with the feelings of “I cannot wait to get out there”. And then- this. It totally bums me out. Can’t this be just something my body completely embaces and just does now!? No questions asked.. no having to analyze “what went wrong or was different this time?” I’m going to go with a “no”. Oh well. Thats what my mom would say I had a big talk with her on the way home from work and asked if she was excited I was doing this… LOL.. wonder if I jinxed tonight.. NO, I know I did’t… Just an excuse. No excuses!! Grrr..
Anyhoo, Friday will be the next 25-minute session. I think I will give it a shot in the morning to switch things up. I just don’t want this to happen to me on the actual day I do the 5k. (May 12! Which is breathing down my neck!)
