Some days are just harder than others

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Some days are just harder than others. Today is starting off as a hard one. Went for a run this morning and had to push myself the whole way. I had to stop and walk for a bit, but I did manage to do 5k. I hate days like these...I'm hungry and crabby too! emoticon

I am waiting for the day I actually enjoy my run, and the voice in my head stops telling me I can't do it. I want to run! It's the hardest thing I have ever done...

There is A 5K race two weeks from today that I would like to do but after a day like this.... I don't want to run a race that I am going to have to stop and walk. I am too competitive with myself.

I don't want to give up cause I know I can do it!! (just wish the voice would shut up!!)

Sorry ...Had to vent!

    I think I am having one of those weeks. Odd question for you.... do you ever run on a treadmill. I have a small mirror there that I see myself in (when I look at it) and it makes it quite easy to actually see that I am strong and I can do it (whatever it happens to be that day). Maybe to see that your arms are swinging at a nice and easy consistent pace is the reminder that you need that you can and are doing it.

    Hate those stupid negative voices. HUGS

    Hope the negative voice has been replaced with a positive one! emoticon

    Take your time you will get to doing it when you can. Don't let that voice in your head get you down, tell it to sit on the side lines and go for your run. And don't be ashamed if you have to walk a bit, do only what your body can handle on any given day.

    You will get there.

    The difference between a 5k done on your own and one done with other people is that the excitement and adrenaline of being part of the group kick in. If you take in the surroundings and experiences of the event there is no room for the negative voice. I would recommend giving it a try. You might surprise yourself!

    emoticon I hope your day gets better soon!

    Remember: The voice inside your head telling you "I can't do this" is a liar!

    Ohhhh, I hear that voice sometimes too! What a jerk that voice is! emoticon
    Keep trying and a new voice will start singing your praises! emoticon
    Okay all cuteness aside, I understand, stick it out, you can do it!

    Walk or run just be proud of yourself doing a 5K. What an accomplishment! Good for you for not going home and sticking your head under a blanket. You have the stuff to be a winner for sure! emoticon emoticon

    Keep up the good work. If you have to walk part of your first 5k,so what? Finish emoticon and get a time to better on the next one. Life is a process and as long as we are attempting to move forward we are not moving backward.
