I need your help.
I am really confused.
I am so confused, I just don’t know what to believe anymore.
(*Drama queen alert*)
I want to be healthy. I thought I am healthy. What am I doing that’s not healthy?
I told you how I could feel my body breaking down, which is a very scary feeling. It hasn’t improved much.
I’m sorry I haven’t made a big announcement about this, or actually mentioned it at all, but I’m a runner. I run 4-5 days week, 1.5-2 miles, and I suck at it. Really, me calling myself a runner is an offense to runners everywhere.
I can’t even call myself a jogger. I’m one of those pathetic walk-jog-shuffle people you see at the park and can’t help laughing at or feeling sorry for. Or both.
I never liked running as a young kid, but my dad is a great runner and has done a bunch of races and marathons. I have a runner’s build, and I figured it was just in my genetics.
So I got out and just tried it.
It was hard at first, but I liked it, knew it was good for me, and I also knew I would improve. It wouldn’t be so hard later.
I always make an effort to be active, so this could be my sport! I could love this! Life is complete!
My plans went something like that. (Lame and corny, I know)
But I hit a major speed bump.
It wasn’t happening. It doesn’t exist. I’m not improving at all.
If anything, after three months of running, I’ve gotten worse at it.
That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. Am I really that out of shape?
I’m not! I have done cardio every day for 3 months. That got easier and easier every day. I am fit.
So why is running getting harder?
That’s where you come in.
You are a very fit and knowledgable bunch. Do you have any ideas for me?
I have a feeling I should just stop running. Walk for a while, and then run.
What do you think?
Because I so highly value your opinion, I’m going to give you a present for helping me out.
I have some big news I’ve been sitting on, and I’m going to hold out for a little bit longer. In the mean time, I asked my friends over at Arctic Zero if they would host a giveaway for me, and they said yes! Arctic Zero is a fabulous product (Low calorie ice cream? Genius!!!!!) and I will talk about it more in a later post.
You wanna win some?
Of course you do.
