A Familiar Problem

So I have literally five minutes to get this blog entry out before the end of the day! I cut it close with the run, too; last couple of days it's been 9, 10, 1030p but tonight I didn't get out till 1140! I'm burnt out, not mentally but physically. I thought I was running very conservatively- a mile here, two there, how can that be pushing it??- but here I am, day 5 and I'm sooo sleepy and my damn muscles are sore! When will I ever learn?- it's not about judging what you think you "should" be able to do, it's just about living what you're actually doing. Today I actually ran just 1/5 of a mile, at the 11th hour HA literally! For shore I wish I was feeling stronger and running longer but you know what? That .2 mile got me out and kept me from quitting. Sometimes that's gotta be the point! I'll take it.

(And all yall who are hatin out there, yeah I type fast :p)


  1. I feel exactly the same. Even though I am only doing short runs I am struggling to fit it in and it is making me so tired. I have to tell myself that I will only be out of the house for about 20 minutes or so doing the run so will soon be back to lounging on the sofa (with an ice pack on my legs!). Keep it up, already nearly a whole week of the Janathon done.

  2. Thanks; yeah, nice to know I'm not the only one wearing myself out on tiny runs! And ice is definitely my friend-- some people swear by heat but I think it makes everything worse for me.

    Well, day 10 already- 1/3 done! Must be doing something right!
