Believe me I am SO SO thankful to be running again and love the feeling I get from it but today was frustrating. When I think logically none of what I am about to write really makes sense because I LOVE challenging myself and reaching new goals but as I was running today I wasn’t so logical:)
At least I was with my best friend the sissy, the weather was perfect and the scenery was to die for.
I was frustrated. The femurs weren’t hurting but my lungs were, every muscle in my body felt like death and I was fighting a mental battle. It is very humbling for me to start at ground zero again with running and having to take walking breaks and stop to catch my breath often. I was frustrated because I remembered how different it used to feel…….starting over again is tough stuff:)
Sorry for complaining and now that I am sitting down and reflecting about my run I remember that I LOVE to see progress and I want to work my butt off to SLOWLY get back to where I was. I can do it. It is NORMAL to get frustrated/upset/angry at least every once in a while on a run. My pace will come back eventually!
WHAT WAS YOUR WORKOUT TODAY!!!
Do you get frustrated comparing yourself to a previous fitness level?
-Yes, but I have to remember that I am coming back from two femoral stress fractures and that I should just THANK GOD for allowing me to heal and get back out on the road!
