Today’s workout was 15-min run, 3-min walk, and 10-min run. Not sure what happened this morning but I didn’t finish my first run. I started my walk break early and told myself I would just tack on the remaining five minutes to my second run. Well, everything went fine. I added the remaining five minute to my last run only to discover after I’m home that I owe myself an additional five minutes! WTH? I don’t think I had another five minutes left in me anyhow so I will be repeating this workout on Saturday.
The perfectionist in me is so disappointed in myself. I ran for 20 minutes on Monday so I don’t know why this workout was so hard. I’m thinking maybe my pace was too fast or maybe not. I know I’m notorious for self-sabotage! I’m trying so hard not to beat myself up. I have to remind myself that I have come a long way, to be very grateful for the progress I’ve made. Some workouts will be like this. I know my opportunity is getting enough rest. I stayed up late watching the Olympics when I should have been in bed sleeping.
Oh well, Saturday I will do better. I will not give up! I have to remember to take this one day at a time, one workout at a time. I have 65 days before the 5K. One “bad” workout is not going to break me. I can do this!
