My short list of things I hate about running April 4, 2008

Posted by t in Running, Why Am I Doing This?.
trackback

1. starting. Whether it’s starting a running plan or just getting my butt off the sofa to go for a run, getting started is the hardest thing about running.

2 weather. Whether it’s too hot or too cold or raining or windy, there’s usually a reason I don’t want to run.

3. warm down. I live in a suburban development with a .7ish mile loop. I only plan to do warm-down on days I do pace or speed work. If I’m running in my neighborhood and finish my pace at my house I have zero chance of doing a warm down.

4. warm up. I don’t have a problem starting slower, but that doesn’t usually last long. Because the faster I pick up my pace, the faster I will be finished and the faster I get to…

an hour after I’m finished runnign and I’m showered and relaxing and feel good enough about myself to earase all the feelings I have about hating running.

Progress on my training:

5 miles on Saturday

2 miles on Monday

4 miles on Wednesday

31 days until the 10 miler

I hate getting started too, it’s seriously the hardest part. I also hate putting on my heart-rate monitor when it’s cold, side cramps, shin splints and running on a treadmill.

way to go on the training though! Yay M!
