YAY!!! It is finally raining here in Ky, we have been needing some rain I honestly do not think its has rained since I ran my 1st half back at the end of March. Now I am REALLY wanting to do this 5k tomorrow and it is suppose to be THUNDERSTORMING!! What luck. Right now I am pondering the decision, do I go ahead and go or should I just wait until the next weekend? (What would you do??) Considering the fact I DID run my half in pouring rain and freezing wind, I SHOULD be able to handle a "little" 5k right?!! And what is wrong with me, I still am finding it hard to complete a whole 3 miles without walking a bit. Our local park that I train/pratice at has a couple of pretty good hills and so I am wondering if that fact is hindering my running the whole 3 miles without walking. I really struggle with the mental game in running and I really do not know why. I don't usually ever get stiches, I think I just mentally get tired and feel like I have to stop for a few seconds, then when I start running again my legs are tired and don't really want to start. UGGGHHHH!! I HATE THIS about my running. I so badly want to be a "GOOD" runner and guess that I am not a horrible runner but I really want to be better. I am hoping that will come in time, I still haven't passed the first year mark of being a runner yet.
To all those running halfs and full marathons this weekend GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!! May the running gods be with you!!
