I am currently training for the Half Marathon in Detroit/Canada in October. Running short runs during the week and a longer one on the weekend. Last Saturday my mind was saying NO DONT DO IT but my body said get off the couch…
After several hours on the couch I decided to go for 10 miles. It was the most horrible run I have ever had ~ It took me 2 hours… I struggled the entire day just feeling off and possibly dehydrated a little. Took 2 days off and on Tuesday decided to run 4 miles on a treadmill. After 2.5 miles I hopped off.. WHERE WAS MY MOJO ! I started to feel maybe my running days were coming to an end.
I had never felt like that before.. I was soooo sad and struggled that I used to enjoy it so much and 1 horrid run was going to dictate my therapy sessions..LOL
I went to the gym 2 days later set the treadmill for 6 miles. IT WAS AWESOME ..
Next Day 4 miles.. Felt even better I had signed up for the bridge run for Sunday and said to myself this could make a break the deal for me…
GREAT ROUTE, GREAT WEATHER, GREAT RUN !!!
I am back in the game and feeling great !!! Don’t get discouraged because of a bad day or even a bad week. Embrace it and learn from it.. Because there is something AMAZING out there waiting for you !
