I am struggling

Friday, February 15, 2013

I'm on week 6 of the c25k program. I am starting this blog because I am finding it hard to stay motivated. I've been having a lot of bad runs lately. I feel like by now I should have gained more endurance. I run outside, on the treadmill, and on an indoor track. The weather is so unpredictable this time of year so I am not able to run outside as much as I'd like to. If I run outside I can run straight for 10 minutes and by the end of that 10 minutes I am dying. A lot of times I feel sick to my stomach like I might vomit. Breathing is what kills me. My body feels like it could keep going but I am so out of breath its difficult. My pace is about 12 minutes a mile so I don't think I'm going too fast. I do concentrate on my breathing as I am running so I am not sure what else I could be doing or not doing to make me be able to run farther.

I think I am frustrated because before I started running I felt I was in decent shape. Running is much more difficult then I imagined.

My first 5k is coming up in the beginning of april and I'm so worried I won't be able to do it. It is a zombie run so its not a typical race. Other runners dressed as zombies will be chasing me. I'd love to be able to run this 5k in 30 minutes.
