Four Days a Week

I’ve decided something when it comes to my running. Four days a week is acceptable. Five would be better, but if I get can get four in, I’ll be happy.

The problem is, I’ve been dreading getting out of bed in the morning to head down to the basement treadmill lately. I don’t know why. It’s like I can’t bother to motivate myself. It’s likely because I see stuff like this:

and remember that I basically died the other day when I was doing this:

I don’t know why I’m terrified of running 2.5 minutes. I shouldn’t be. I know I can do it, but it’s like there is a mental block. I’m terrified to move past Week 2.

I’m going to have to power through it. What I’m doing is making me healthier for my family. I have to push through the angst I’m putting on myself right now. I know it’s okay to repeat days, or even weeks, if I need to. I full comprehend what’s going on in my head, I just don’t know how to fix it.

I was supposed to get up this morning to run, but Bear had other ideas. He got up around 2 a.m. and I didn’t go back to sleep until 6, so there was no running for me. And then I basically passed out on the sofa this afternoon.

Check dailymile to see if I conquer Week 3, Day 1 tomorrow.

  1. When I was doing the C25K program, I battled with mental blocks ALL the time! It just seemed like the program went from 1:30 minutes which was doable, all the way to 3 and then 5… I found I have to increase my time a lot slower than that. Running 5 minutes scared the heck out of me! Keep up the awesome work!
