I can't wait for running to get easy :(
I know I need to just accept that some days are easier than others, and that's life. But I get frustrated!
Today I headed out for my run, 3.15 miles mapped out, and I am determined to jog the whole thing, even if it takes me 50 minutes! (this is not counting my warm up walk and cool down walk.)
Well, instead, 5 minutes in I feel so sore and out of breath that I decide I will take a 1 minute walking break, so I do. After 1 minute of walking I painfully struggle through another couple minutes of jogging but by this point I'm only half jogging and half limping in pain.
So instead I went 1.64 miles, mostly walking. (this is counting my warm up walk and cool down walk. )
I don't know what was going on. Once I slowed to a walk, my legs still hurt but I wasn't limping anymore and I wasn't feeling sore at all before I started running.
I just keep telling myself- I will get there eventually. Eventually.
