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!!
Another Run Happy Weekend
