Disappointed in myself?

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

I completed another 5k run/walk. My heel suffers during the run as well as the next day from plantar fasciitis. I decided before the event that I would walk instead of run as it wasn't timed and I wanted to enjoy it. My friends that accompanied me stated they would walk as well. Of course, right at the start line, they begin to run. I tried to keep going but gave up quickly when I noticed they were too far to see me behind them. I "ran" a 4 mile the weekend before (i.e. ran what I could, then walked, repeat). My friends felt pressure from the next wave coming behind us. Feeling very disappointed in myself, I held the hand of my 10 year old and told her how thankful I was that she stayed with me to walk. Should I have run more? Maybe. Was my body sore the rest of the day or next? No. Did I have a good time anyway? At the end, yes. I was a role model for my children and for them, I am thankful. Am I looking forward to the mud run next weekend? Not so much. Should I discuss with the same friends that I won't be able to run or just suck it up and stay with their pace? Hmmm
