Wow, I really did it - I ran Week 4, Day 1 of Rookie Runner training today and did all the intervals! When I started out I had every intention of doing my best, but expected to walk at least part of those jog sets. When I finished the run part, I walked back the rest of the way feeling so strange: happiness, humility, guilt, joy - you name it, I was probably feeling some of it. Why did I have such a mixed reaction? Is this 'normal'? I think the guilt was for not believing in myself enough, but the rest.... ??
I was just pondering the mystery of my feelings, and still don't have any answers... this feeling stuff is for the birds! lol But I guess I have to go through it to stop 'stuffing' my feelings down. Too, it could just be spill-over from the rest of my life; it's been a rough couple of days for me.
One thing I know for sure: It's not that I believed that I COULD do it, it's just that I didn't let myself STOP doing it... so for all of you out there that think you probably can't do something - you CAN!
