5K and Up and Down
Friday, February 08, 2013
Well....I signed up for my first 5K ever....man am I nervous, but I'm trying. I'm terrified I'll come in last or I won't make the time or...I don't even know, but I'm definitely nervous.
I've been doing really well with healthy living this week. I've gone to the gym every day. I've eaten healthy. I've made healthy choices at the grocery store. I bought new running shoes. I've challenged myself on the treadmill. I've pushed past what I thought was possible. I've been proud of each of those things. I am proud of what I've done.
However...right now I also see everything that's wrong. I don't run fast enough (I don't really run, I jog). I ran a 5K on the treadmill yesterday (yay!) but it took me 52 minutes which is far too slow. I'm seeing the bad right along with the good. I wasn't earlier this week. Earlier I was only seeing the good things, the growth, the good choices. But yesterday and today the pride is being overshadowed by the doubts and negativity. Suggestions? Thoughts?
