Here's what I don't get.
On Sunday I did just shy of 5 miles. A decent pace - not great - 18m - but did it. And felt tired - but okay.
Then today I used my new Gymboss interval timer to do the run/walk interval for 30 minutes - and my shins were KILLING ME.
How can I go 5 miles okay and not 30 minutes okay?
Ugh. It's frustrating. It makes me wonder about my abilities to keep pace - and that leads me to doubts - and fear - and that is the path to the dark side.
I'm hopeful for my meeting with the dietician next week. I'm doing what she asked - and tracking what I eat - and seeing patterns - seeing why I seem to hover - I go up a few - down a few. And I'm making a conscious effort to break the patterns. But I want to know what her plan for me is.
I have roughly 90 days until the race. That's LOTS of time to train and lose weight to get faster.
But I doubt myself at times.
Thank goodness YOU all are here to remind me to believe in myself.
