Oh, lordy. I’m starting to get to that “What the hell are you thinking?” point in my c25k training. I did this last time too. I question myself all the time as to whether or not I’m “built” to run. It just seems like it is harder for me than many other people.
Now, I know I shouldn’t compare myself to all the other food bloggers out there that run every day and complete half and full marathons, but shouldn’t running get easier with time, not harder?
Yes, I am going a longer distance now than I was say, three weeks ago, but I also feel like I should be “learning” more about how to run.
I have decided to go back to walking outside and running inside. If running on the treadmill is easier for me, then that’s what I should do. Maybe once I am able to fully complete my goal distance (3.1 miles or a 5k) on the treadmill, I can revisit running outside.
Maybe I’m coming at this from the wrong direction. Maybe not. But for now I think this is going to be my plan of action.
What exercise limitations do you face? Have you overcome them? How did you do it?
