Week 6, Day 1: Pity Party for 1

Today sucked. I was supposed to do 5 run/3 walk/8 run/3 walk/5 run, and instead I did 4 run/20 walk. I felt fine physically, but mentally I had a lot of self-doubt going on. I was disappointed in myself for something else (I don't even remember what it was) so somehow decided that I should rob myself of any kind of personal acheivement. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go find a shrink.


  1. The mind is a terrible thing sometimes. I went through a bad break up right after I started C to 5K. Let me tell you, I had a really hard time getting through some of those "supposed" easy runs. But you'll break through....the next one will be awesome :)

  2. I can was week 6 day 1 for me too and it was my worst session yet. I can't figure out how I could tough it out through 20 minutes of running last workout (the first time I have ever run for 20 minutes inmy entire life) only to have today be a complete suckfest. You know was only one bad run though, so I'm just going to stick with the program knowing that my next session can't possibly be worse than today's run. Good luck to you!!!!

  3. Self-sabbotage/punishment is a nasty thing... At least you've identified what has happened which means you won't let it all go to pieces from here.

    Get back on your horse and find that good feeling again. You know you can do it! :-)
