Well, things aren’t exactly going to plan. I promised myself that I wouldn’t write a down in the dumps negative post so I’m going to try and keep this uplifting.
I have been pretty sick lately and I’ve been struggling through my runs just waiting for it to pass. I’m finally seeing the doctor tomorrow so fingers crossed I get some medication to help me out. So far I have been able to keep up my 3 km a day minimum but yesterday I hit my limit. I went out and after 1 km I burnt out and for the first time ever I called my DH to come pick me up. Normally I would dig deep and keep going, even if it was just to walk home but after slowly jogging 1 km yesterday I almost passed out. Not good. I wanted to throw up and faint all at the same time and I knew it was time to call it quits and get my night in shining armour to rescue me via the car.
- Distance: 1 km
- Time: 7:11
I don’t know if this means I’ve failed the challenge because I didn’t run 3 km. Technically, I still ran so I haven’t missed a day of running, I just did under my set running minimum. I’m going to count it because it was such an effort to get out and go. I ran 1 km and I’m not ashamed. I know my body will heal sometime soon and I can get back to what I was running. I just need to be patient. I’m not sure how I will go running today but I will tackle that later tonight. Even if I can only do 1 km I will be happy.
Happy running – Melissa
