To Hell and Back

Recommended Posts

W7D1 this week was the hardest run I've ever had on the C25K program. I finished, but only due to sheer stubbornness. My wife, who is usually beside me or behind me, ran way off into the distance. Mentally I started questioning why I was doing this. I just wanted to quit the whole program.

 

Then day 2 came along. I didn't want to run. I was scared. I didn't want to have another experience like my last run. Still, I laced up my shoes and reluctantly headed out the door. I had great run! I got into a nice rhythm, and finished strong. Today's run was even better. My pace was nearly 2 mins. per mile faster on W7D3 than on W7D1.

 

I guess the moral to the story is that we all have bad days, but never let those bad days hold you back from the good days.

I like that. :-D I did wk 7 day 1 today and for the first time ever in my life, I thought I was going to throw up when I finished. Was thinking I didn't want to do day 2 and 3 if that nausea feeling was going to happen again. But as you say 'never let those bad days hold you back' - have fun when you start out on week 8! :-)

Youre exactly right 420! We're human we will have days that are harder and slower than others. I remember those days when I first started would just ruin my whole week. I learned not to be too hard on myself and so have you! Congrats on making through week 7 like a boss!
