So I'm still a very baby runner, honestly it's still more walking than running, but it's more running than I've done...oh ever. I finished W2D3 (week 2 day 3) of the C25k program (couch to 5k) yesterday. I feel like those 90 second runs are still super hard. Tonight I think I'm going to do a 4th day in Week 2 just for the extra workout of it.
Maybe each week I won't really feel ready to move on but how am I to know what's in my head and what's my body telling me I need to do an extra workout or an extra week? How do I get over my own mind games? It's super frustrating. I just want to feel confident about myself and my (baby) abilities. I don't like feeling like I'm floundering or unsure of what I'm doing.
I do know what my plan is. My plan is to keep plugging along and to keep running and keep progressing through the program. I know the program works for many people and I feel like it will for me. I think that sooner or later there will just be a day or a week were I'm suddenly like "oh hai I can do this better today". I'm looking forward to that day.
Until then I'm going to keep my head down and put one foot in front of the other and see where that takes me.
