First of all, THANK YOU to those who have left such sweet and heartfelt comments – YOU guys are the ones that are inspiring, and your words help immensely.
I went to the gym after work, hoping that working on my 5K training would help clear my head. Somehow it ended up doing just the opposite and after 8 minutes, while holding back tears, I ditched my workout.
I’m hoping it was just mental; that the wall I hit has nothing to do with my ability to run, but is more about my mood. Nonetheless, it was a little defeating. I’m determined to run this 5K in 7 weeks but have a hard time keeping my running mojo, so to speak, when I have workouts like this.
Anyway, I told myself I’d come back in the morning and try again. Maybe cooking a batch of chili, watching The Bachelor, and getting some sleep will work some magic.
(Letting out a big boohoo in the car helped a bit, too.)
Again, thank you for your comments and encouragement – it makes this whole ordeal that much easier.
