I really don’t understand this whole running thing. One day, it feels great and I’m actually having fun, like last Friday. And then, a few days later, I try to run one easy mile on the treadmill, and I want to throw up. How is that even possible?!
Last Friday I had an awesome Lunch Break Run. It was freezing, so I didn’t push myself too hard, but I ended up running a little bit faster than usual. Eh?
- Distance: 3.75 miles (6,0 km)
- Time: 42:10 minutes
- Average pace: 11:14 min/mile
- Feeling: Freezing
Our mild winter is definitely over now, and it’s getting colder and colder every day, with highs between 10 and 20 °F. So, instead of running outside, I went to the gym today. First I did a short warm-up on the bike, then I switched to the treadmill for a few easy miles. After one mile I gave up because I felt so miserable.
- Distance: 1 mile (1,6 km)
- Time: 11:30 minutes
- Average pace: 11:30 min/mile
- Feeling: Nauseous
I’ve always been a science person, trying to find the logic behind everything. But to me running just doesn’t make any sense. And this bothers me, a lot!
Do you understand how running works? Please help me out!
