My running morale is at an all-time low. I've gotten to the 5-minute mark--hell, I've even run for 7 minutes straight--but I'm having trouble consistently completing a 2 1/2 mile run. How am I ever going to run for the whole 5K?
Today I felt like I was going to barf after I got to my halfway mark so I walked. I started to run again but I think I had comvinced myself that I was indeed going to barf so I stopped again. Maybe it's time I got a running buddy. I've been quick to stop lately and if I'm honest with myself, I'm not sure if I'm really needing to stop or if I'm just being a baby. While I was running today I was even entertaining the idea of just not showing up for the 5K since there's no way I can do it. How's that for motivational thinking??
Nieghbor Bob said he'd run the 5K with me. Maybe the thought of me looking like a dork in front of him by walking some if it will spur me on to do it that day. I think I need some peer pressure.
