Diet and blergh

  • Aug 15th, 2017 at 6:17AM

I am not enjoying running and I have no idea why. It seems like every run is rough sledding, I feel like I am fighting myself, which is not a great feeling. My knee actually feels fine, but now I have a bunch of other niggly maladies, possibly from trying to run such that I avoided hurting the knee. But I really don't know what is going on, I expected to get back on track after a few bad runs, but each run just sucks. I spoke with a good friend who is a pretty serious runner and he thought that I may just be a bit mentally blown out with all the car stuff, which makes me feel like a complete doofus to be honest.

I didn't do the long run for the second straight week, which I don't love, but I feel like I have the endurance for a sub 1 hour 10k, and that was my goal. On the plus side, I have been pretty darned good on diet. It being summer I have definitely let a few beers sneak in here and there, but overarchingly I have been pretty on point. Over the last 5 days I have seen a significant ramp up in my personal effectiveness, I have been demolishing my daily to do lists, so that is very cool.

I hope everyone is doing great. Best of luck everyone!

Thanks for your honesty and working it all out on the blogs. I bet you see a turn for the better this final week. If not, well f--- it, you made it through another program and have that street cred. Good luck.

    Yeah Ed, I have to be honest, I can't make heads or tails out of it. I have tried a few different things, but after about 7 minutes it feels like I am carrying a sack of wet concrete on my back. Or dry concrete....whatever is heavier.

      Brett, can you clarify something for me? Are the runs still getting done or are you bailing on them after a few minutes? Further, have you given yourself permission to walk? This'll help guide us as we support you through the final leg of Run 10K. Cheers.

        Hey Brett...I often find myself in conversations with people who hate running (my husband being one of them)...so you are not alone. The fact you can do a sub 1-hour 10km is pretty darn good. Maybe try taking up Touch Rugby...lots of short runs and in a team sport. ..though may not be good for the knee.
