This is the most Un-chipper I've been in a while.
I have been doing amazing at everything. I'm happy, I'm losing something if not weight (I don't check my weight). I am doing alright and getting better at everything I do aside from one very important thing. I'm doing better at Insanity, the elliptical, and weight training. But when it comes to running it's like I'm in a bad dream. You know in a dream you try to run so fast but you just cant, you go slow even though you feel like you Have to get away. That's me running. I don't get any better at endurance. I suck at the C25K program because I can't last that long or run for... bananas. I suck.
My knees hurt sometimes, and shin splints are killer but I can get through pain. I just cant last long and I am so painfully slow it's just sad. I don't want to go to the track anymore because it's pretty pathetic to see me run. My 10yo daughter laps me because if she doesn't I would hold her back. My 6yo son I can't even catch when he runs. How can I go so long on the elliptical "running" until I sweat buckets and can't even speak but put me on flat ground and I'm a tortise.
Instead of just running at the track I'm thinking of also doing sprints across the length of the back yard everyday. At least then no one can see me. It's kind of depressing when I think about it, so I've been shoving it out of my mind for the last 4 weeks and just doing the best I could. But I'm not getting any better or faster at running and I have a 5k in a month. :/ By now I should be able to run for 5min straight according to C25K, but I can't even run 1min still. I drink plenty of water, I stretch, I do freaking insanity and can run in place and jump and whatever sweat all over the floor, but I cant just run. I want to run and I want to be fast. I put in the work but I'm getting nothing. There's something wrong here.
Suffer The Pain Of Discipline.
Or Suffer The Pain Of Regret.
