I went for a jog last night around the high school track next to my house. I was feeling pretty lousy. It was 100+ degrees last night, even with the sun going down. After completing the C25K program, I still can't run 3.2 miles under 30 minutes.
Before I went out for my jog, I had to water my neighbors yard since she is out of town. Her yard looks like the Botanical Gardens, and I kid you not, it took me 50 minutes to soak everything.
By the time I finished, my tennis shoes were sopping wet, from one of the ground sprinklers exploding on my feet.
I decided to go to the track anyway, even though my shoes weighed 5lbs each. It felt like I was sticking my foot into a jar of jelly.
After I go there, I just wasn't feeling it...
It was 100 degrees.
I was running out wide around parents who were standing on the track to watch their kids play JFL.
And I noticed that I have cankles.
So I took my pity party home.
I'm going back tonight. I will do this. I wish I could just pay someone to chase me.
UPDATE: I went back to the track tonight... I finished the 3.2 miles under 35 minutes. My goal is to get this under 30 minutes by Labor Day. You would have thought I was chasing the ice cream truck.
