Don't waaaannnaaaa!

Feeling like I have a case of the terrible two's. Although my mommy friends have said two is nothing, it's three that's horrible. Regardless, I am in my running gear thinking, "I don't wanna and you can't make me." And, nobody can, but me. But I don't waaaannnaaaa.

My husband said to me last night if I hate the training so much, then this should be the only one (half) I do. But blog truth (kinda like pink swear), it's fear. Stupid stuff like will the route I choose be too hard, will my stomach hang in there, should I take water, will my stupid sock issue surface...can I do it?

Some of these things may come up, but so what, right? I'm not 2, I'll deal with it when/if it comes up. I can do it. I just need to get out there and get it over with. (Hey, I never said I am perfect!)

So, I will give my breakfast a bit more time to digest, put on my shoes, and suck it up and head out. I can do this. What about you? What will or are you doing that's taking you out of your comfort zone to get you to the next level---exercise or something else?

(BTW, I told hubby that I don't hate the training, I just need to whine out my fear and he gets to be the lucky one to hear it!)

I am feeling the same thing today! I have decided to wait for the temp to get in the 50's and then I have not choice but to get my butt outside and enjoy this beautiful sunny day!! Have a good run!

I think we all feel that way sometimes! When my hubby and I got to the hospital the day of surgery, I looked at him and said, okay, let's go home, this was just a practice run right? :) I just needed to whine a little! Hope your training run went great!!

Whine away - good for you for going out anyway and recognizing the need to whine!

just recently started running myself after losing 30 lbs. and my 12 yr old son goes with me as my "trainer." when i started saying I can't do this, he always reminds me, yes, you CAN. you just THINK you can't. the wisdom of kids always amazes me...!
