Still Running

I ran in the Worldwide WordPress 5K yesterday. I wish I could say it was a great run.

But it wasn’t. I planned to run 5 1/2 miles but I cut the run short because I felt terrible. My legs hurt. I couldn’t get my breathing right. And my arms even hurt at one point. It was my worst feeling run to date. But I got the 3.1 miles in.

fullsizerender-7Since last year a lot of good things have happened with my running. I run regularly and longer distances and at a faster pace. I ran an 8K in May. I finished a Spartan Race in August and I will run my first 10K in October.

Most importantly I will run tomorrow and I will run my planned 5 1/2 miles. Even if hurts.

Because I want to get better at this.

  1. Oh I’ve been there many times, good for you for keeping going. AS long as you know its not an injury or causing an injury the best thing you can do is keep going. WELL DONE!

  2. Good for you Marie 😊 I joined a beginners running group a couple of months ago, ‘graduated’ but still haven’t managed to attend any of the improver sessions.
    Good luck for the 10k in October, do let us know how you get on 😊

  3. Running can be so darn hard sometimes! Keep at it and I love your attitude about getting up and doing it all again tomorrow!

  4. Good for you. Running isn’t easy. Some definitely feel better than others. But if we stick with it, there are more and more of those great rains tucked in around those tough ones.

      1. I do better in the cool too, lol! I’m doing good, thank you for asking! I’ve had a solid 3 weeks of mourning, but I’m definitely ready to get back to the living! And resume my training!! I have a half in 6 weeks, for heaven’s sake, so time for me to snap out of it! 😀
