Will I never not hate it?


I want to run smoothly and not dread it. I know this will come with time but I am doing probably too much for my out of shape body so today I am bitching.

On a good note I got in my 2.1 miles-slower pace but jogged the whole distance. I just found an article about finding your pace and that will help you have a more comfortable run. I am such a Newbie I am not sure I even know what my pace is or how to find it but I think tonight I may read about it a little. I am also happy to report although I am breathing hard in the end my recovery is fast-like the "I am going to die" feeling at the end passes relatively quickly. Soon I hope to not have that feeling at all but I guess I wouldn't be pushing myself if I didn't.

Tomorrow is my cross day so I am hoping to steal the old man's truck and get to the bike path with my bike and trailer. Biking around here is a bit scary with my child in the back so I need to find a safe place where I can get some riding done.

Hopefully the day will get better now that the beast is taking a nap-Boy can she kick my butt!!

Running requires muscle memory. Think of golf. I don't golf, so when I swing a golf club it just feels awkward. But, if I practiced swinging a golf club every day, it may get to the point where it feels natural - because my muscles will have learned and remembered exactly when to contract and relax throughout the swing. Running, as simple an activity as it may be, follows the same principle. The more you run, the more comfortable running will feel. And I think you are well on your way!
