Monday I did some "Runners Yoga" and it kicked my butt, literally - well, it actually kicked my back and shoulders if we are being literal. Tuesday was a running day, but I was by myself at the gym and didn't have enough motivation. This week's set is run for 6 minutes, walk for 2 for 5 sets. I did one full running set, and the other two were 3min run, 1 min walk because I just didn't have it in me - and I couldn't even complete all 5 sets.
Feeling a little like a failure. The other two girls who are running with me can run at least 1 straight mile without stopping, one girl can run 2. It's not that I'm jealous or upset with that, mostly it's that I don't think I'll ever get to that point. I'm getting discouraged and want to change my goal so I don't fail-but that's really a terrible idea. But what happens when I can't do this like I want to?
So I guess for today, for this week, I'll set smaller goals. My goal for today's run is this: 4min warm-up walk, 6min run, 2min walk, 6min run, 2min walk, and then at least 5 minutes of fast walking (4.0). That's an improvement on Tuesday and then on Friday we can do 3 6min runs until I can do 5!
I CAN do this! I have to do this!
