Saturday, March 2nd . I marked this return by running a 5K because I'm dumb like that. I then followed that up with a half marathon because, again, I'm so prettyIn thinking of progress reports this morning I figured I'd write my own progress report with my return to running. I've been back up and running since my six week hiatus that ended on
The silver lining in this so far bleak post is that I mentally feel better about where I am as a runner. I was killing myself initially and feeling bad every week at track when I lined up two or three groups behind where I was. But, I am truly seeing some progress every week and in the life of a runner you sometimes have to think about where you are right now and not dwell on the past. This has been a big lesson for me and it's one that I'm not totally good at. Yet.
So, here it is, my progress report. In my comeback to running, I'm giving myself a 6.2 average. I definitely need to work on a few things and I probably should have added in "mental training" cause lord knows I have been a work in progress on that end. Ultimately, I'm giving myself a pat on the back because coming back to running is not easy. And again, being happy to run at all is really where it's at.
Ever given yourself a progress report? What would you add in or take out?
