😰 Sorry to hear that you’re in the same boat as me!!
This is a rant so I’ll edit it later on my computer to make it a read-more so I don’t annoy anyone ~~~
I’m just so fed up with running lately (that’s why I haven’t posted my workouts). This is my first week of preseason, and it’s almost unbearable. We’ve had three days of practice so far, and every day we do the same thing: 1 mile warmup, a couple drills/plyos, 1.5 miles at about 10-11 min per mile pace, and 1 mile cool down, plus a bit of core that’s way, way too easy for me. It’s not like I expected preseason to be reasonable, considering our summer workout instructed us to not start running until the last week of July and to run “3-4 miles at an easy pace three times a week.”
Yes. That’s what we were instructed to do, if you can believe it.
Preseason wouldn’t be so bad if I could just get in my mileage by running twice a day, which is what I’ve been doing this week. The problem is, doing consecutive double days drains my legs and makes me exhausted, even if the pace isn’t fast. So all of my runs have felt like shit (today, during my second run, I had to stop several times, and the pace should have been easy. The worst part was that the whole time I was thinking, “How the hell am I supposed to run an 18 minute 5K if I can’t even finish this run?!”). And there’s no way I can hit 45 miles this week. And I’m scared and tired and I just want to give up…
we all feel like this sometimes when we run
First lunch in Miami.
I’m so jealous of you right now
For normal clothes, I like Sperrys and Jack Rogers for shoes and J. Crew (that’s where most of my clothes are from), H&M, Ralph Lauren, Lilly Pulitzer, and Tommy Hilfiger for other stuff. I also go to a lot of thrift shops for good bargains! I love Nike for running clothes, but everything there always costs a billion dollars, so I usually buy Nike stuff at Modell’s or Sports Authority!
