This week's Hurdle!
Saturday, September 10, 2011
I have had lousy runs all week. it is as if i can't get the pacing right. On Tuesday I boinked at about 15 minutes; Thursday I boinked at 22 minutes and today it happened at 22 minutes again. I am extremely frustrated!!!
Today I abandoned the run and walked much of it instead. Today's run was complicated by the fact that I forgot to bring water with me and the fact that it started to pour down rain. I decided I would try it again tomorrow.
I have mixed feelings about abandoning the intervals next week especially given my lack of success this week. I have asked my trainer to help pace me for the thirty minute runs. I am glad that I have been running fairly regularly over the last six months. If I had not been I might consider abandoning running entirely. Now I am just determined to get past this hurdle and get back on pace!
