Seriously. I hyperventilate just thinking about it. I really do. I don’t know why, but it scares me to death.
I have a thing with failure. So in my mind, if I just don’t do it… then I haven’t failed! RIGHT?!?!
I have failed myself really. I could be so much faster.
Intervals have wrecked me! I look forward to them. They allow me to run further than I could if I didn’t stop.
I am not ready to give them up for my half marathon races or my longer runs. I can’t do that right now, but I know I have to give them up for my weekly runs. I mean come on! I should be able to run for 3 miles straight. I’ve done it before. I know I can do it. I just need to push myself and just DO IT!
So here we go. No more intervals. Just run.
and you know what? I did it! Surprise, surprise. I actually did it. and I didn’t die or fall off the treadmill.
It wasn’t fast, but it wasn’t meant to be. Just a nice easy 3 mile run. Without stopping.
I can do it.
Now just to get faster..
