Turning into a Negative Nance... no y necessary.
I let the training plans get the better of me. I know I have said this before, but are they really worth it? If I run 4 days a week, and make sure I listen to my body, working my distance up as I go, how necessary is the training program?
Something I do need to come to terms with is my speed and just know that if I stick with a steady running schedule speed will come.
I have a 10K scheduled for less than a month away, so at least that will get me up to 6.2 miles.
I have this feeling that I am stressing too much and putting too much pressure on myself. I beat myself up when I don't hit the goal I set for myself that day.
Sometimes I wonder, how do people make their long run days work?
Ok, so life has gotten the best of me on my Sundays, and I really should be training on Sundays.
Must train more, relax more and JUST DO IT!
I obviously cannot just post something and leave it alone... edit # 3 (maybe)
I will leave you with this little nugget of wisdom from SkinnyRunner.
"You can focus on how much you have left or how much you've accomplished. Either way it doesn't change your fitness, just your perspective" (well said and I need to keep reminding myself of that) Just keep on keeping on and the miles will come.
