Let’s talk about yesterdays run shall we.
My sister looks asleep and I could only muster up a half smile. She told me to crop out her feet but I am too lazy to do such a thing as I am sprawled out on the couch babysitting my neices as they are watching Arthur talk about Biotic Bunny, yep I definitely still enjoy watching cartoons.
Usually the sis and I talk for the majority of our runs but yesterday we said a total of 8 sentences……consisting of me telling my sister to slow down or telling her that I feel like my body is about to blow up any second (no pain injury-wise just really tired).
I am thankful to be running again but dang….getting back in running shape is hard to do.
I couldn’t help but compare myself to my old fitness level and get really frustrated with myself.
I am really missing my old awesome form….either my arm swing is really good, I was trying to show Billy my sexy elbow or I was getting swedish fish out of my sports bra to eat.
Why was a run that used to be considered in my weird brain to be an EASY run feel like it was the toughest thing in the world? This was both of our longest run since last march so at least we were both feeling like death…misery loves company.
I don’t think I would have finished without her and she said the same thing!
All you newish runners…..I am right there with youl running is tough work but let’s stick with it okay:)
Running is hard. It feels awesome afterwards and once you build up a great base it feels a lot better but getting there is another story. It just gets easier right?
Anyone want to share if they think running is ridiculously HARD…..come on, help the sis and I feel a little more normal:)
Do you compare yourself to previous fitness levels? How do you avoid doing this?
I am in charge of dessert tonight for family dinner….WHAT SHOULD I MAKE?!?!
