Running sucks. Pardon my French, but it really, really does. I don’t like it at all. Not one aspect of it. My stamina is zero, zilch, na-da, nonexistent. I don’t have any kind of stamina. I think it is a medical abnormality. Some people are born with stamina, some are not. I apparently fall into the later group and I am okay with that.
I am trying the running program (found on training tab above) of running for one minute, walking for two, repeat 10 times. Okay, I did it. I wanted to cry a little. My calves are tight and hurt. I RAN FOR 10 MINUTES! Ten minutes!! That was it. Only ten minutes of running and I am ready to throw in the towel and call it quits. I am such a loser.
And to top it all off, a bug flew in my mouth. I do not know what kind of bug. Does it matter really? It flew in, I gagged, and it quickly flew out once more—alive and unharmed. It happened while I was running with my mouth gaped open as I breathed rapidly trying to stay alive. Ridiculous!
Maybe running doesn’t suck. I see tons of people running all the time. Maybe I just suck at running. While I ran my 60 seconds I kept checking my timer BEGGING the seconds to tick by faster and then during my 2 minutes of walking I prayed the seconds would slow down.
I need a miracle. I see no other way I will survive the Ragnar. I am afraid for my life here.
