tired The Nick track - Wolfeboro, NH 2.13 mi 00:37 17:16 pace

Kind of the hardest run I've attempted. It was either a combo of not working out for 3 days last week or not running in a week. OR it was finally running outside and not with the help of the treadmill. This was harder than my C25K week 4 workouts. I didn't even try a C25K workout. Just figured I'd walk a lap, run a lap. Each lap was .25 mi. What really happened: 2 lap walk warm up, run on straightaways, walk on curves for 4 laps, 2 lap walk cooldown.

    sometimes you just have to walk which is so ok. I wouldn't sweat it. You could incorporate walks into your runs and you'll find your running pace will improve faster as your body will feel more rested.

    Thanks. I always incorporate walks into my runs...in reality my "runs" are more walks with running intervals. My friend said recently to focus on my improvement and not the negative. However, looking back at where I was in April. I haven't improved at all regarding running. Running is just REALLY hard for me. I've been trying since January and I'm still struggling. It's discouraging, but I guess the positive in this is that I'm still trying and I haven't given up.

    Sara-when I started running regularly, entering races and the like, I always did a run/walk combo. Whenever I would run with my husband, who is a stubborn "just do it" kind of guy, he would say, "STOP walking and just slow down your run-you don't have to run FAST, you just have to keep running". And I would give him the evil eye and tell him to shut up...and then, lo-and-behold, during one 5K race, I did just that-and I ran the whole thing!!! You can do it!

    Colleen - someone else said the same thing to me, that if she stopped her "running" she'd slow down indefinitely and it was harder to get going into a run again. I may try that sometime, but I honestly don't think, no matter how slow I go, I can continually run for that long. My "running" is pretty slow already, lol. But I will definitely give it a try!! Thanks!
