Some days are better than others

I wonder what makes today so much harder than lets say Sunday? I am only speaking for myself because I have a wonderful running partner. As I look at what Scotty says on the screen today sucked. I had a hard time! Ok I still didn't run an 11:00 minute mile but not far off. The rest of our group just breezes by us like it is nothing. Tamara and I have talked about this, we are not racing you, we are racing ourselves, so it doesn't matter. But my competive spirit says why can't I be fast like that. Maybe the fat that giggles around my waste and my butt is the reason.... Oh who knows! Can you say disgusted with myself. So boot camp, here I come. I had almost convinced myself that I was doing enough with biking and running. Obvisously not! See you tomorrow at 5:30 a.m. Michael Broadway.

So now I am mad and that is all there is to this post. Right now I hate running and feel like I will never be able to finish 26.2 miles. without dying!

Good night!

Hi Amy,

I want to say don't be so hard on yourself, but I get it. I do the same thing when I watch Chris and Keith breeze by--I want to run that fast! Some days are just better than others. On Sunday's 10 miler I was thinking, "If it's this hard with 10, how will I ever keep pace for 26.2?" But you just will. All this training when you don't feel like it and it's hard and you have a crappy run pays off. And quit talking about about your far--if you lose any more weight you will disappear!

Uh, that would be "fat," not far. =)

Yesterday was rough but at least we did it! And we did it fully, we could've cut that run short but we didn't. Like I always say, we could be somewhere eating at an all-you-can-eat buffet but instead we are out exercising and being healthy. I completely understand how you feel though because several times yesterday I questioned why I was even doing this... See you bright and early Sat, it will be better by then!

Wow. Look at the self pity! If you weren't tired and exhausted you wouldn't be accomplishing anything. Frustration is part of the game, right? Tell your new running partner that part of her job is to tell you to stop whining :) xoxo

OMG Chick, When I saw you come in last night you looked like you had nailed that run. Sometimes when I think I have a bad day it really not that bad to anyone except me. I know how bad days go and like Dena said....you just do it...Just think of it this way....a bad day now and then just makes the good days sweeter.
