Some runs will be a struggle, some days you may not be feeling it at all, it could really be a challenge and you need to stop. That's okay. Stop. But if you are one of the ones that really want to do this, just make sure to start again on your next running day. Don't give up, never compare yourself to someone else or even yourself if you did a mile last week and today, you're having trouble completing a tenth of a mile at a jog. Some days are just going to be like that. Take a break, rest a day or two (or more), then get back out there and start a little slower or decrease your distance. It's okay, really it is.
I feel awesome after a run! Some parts may be more difficult than others, but when I'm done, I feel so amazing and I've completed another goal, that all I can remember, (or perhaps choose to remember), are the great aspects of that run.
Today was the second day of my week four training, I feel like I'm ready to move forward to another level, but week five is a bit of a jump. Fortunately, Todd Lange (creator of the 5K101), has also created a week called 4.2, which is an increase, but not quite the jump that week five will be. I think this will be my next goal for at least one or two running days before moving to week five. I'm really looking forward to it. I'll let you know how it goes!
HAPPY RUNNING TO YOU!!
