Running . . . FAIL!

I really want to be able to run . . . I really do. Somehow I can't convince my body of that though!

I've just come back from trying to run a 5k. (Keelie from Real Fat challenged me to run a 5k. I'm a sucker for a challenge . . . I just hate when I lose!)Yea . . . that didn't work so well. I barely got 1/2 mile and that wasn't totally running either. :-( I ran for a minute then felt my legs cramping up, so I stretched them out (and my back and hips since they're still bothering me) and restarted. This time my legs felt great, but for the life of me I could not breath! 10 minutes into it at just under a half a mile I hit the cool down button (because yes, I was running on the treadmill) and slowed down until I was just so mad I had to get out of there. I walked home and here I am.


FUCK! (Sorry, I'm a little pissed still!)

So in addition to eating crap, I've not really been exercising the past couple weeks. Not hard like I should be. And I've not worked out in at least a week. Maybe I expected too much?

I'm feeling slightly defeated and really really frustrated. I did eat plenty of crap today . . . that probably has something to do with it to.

*sigh* Well I'm going to steam an artichoke and watch Valkerie. We need to get that back to netflix.

Tomorrow's another day. I'm headed to the pool to swim laps until I want to sink to the bottom. I need to desperately improve my endurance. It sucks poopy donkey balls!

(Sorry I've been so angry and negative recently . . . I'll get over it. I may even be back to my happy-go-lucky self tomorrow! **GRIN**)

Thank you for all of your encouragement and good thoughts!! 

OH! And check out Keelie's blog . . . especially her Create a Breakthroughs post! She's awesome!! 


  1. Not everyone is meant to be a runner. Take it slowly with smaller goals and you might succeed.

    Since I'm giving advise and can't stop myself, ditch the fast food. It's the best eating health decision you can make.

  2. Thanks Dr. J.

    I've decided to go back to the C25k and start back at the beginning. With more cross training this time to build up my endurance and prevent shin splints again.

  3. You can sdo this. You body may not want to, but it'll thank you later. :)

    You'll get through this ugh period and secceed like you know you can! Hang in there, Em!
