I'am feeling guilty

by - October 15, 2009

I ran only three or four times in three weeks and am feeling demotivated and guilty. The reason behind not running isnt laziness exactly, but the on and off cold and cough. I recovered completely a week back and went running. The next day I fell sick again.

I know I have more than two months remaining until the race, but what if I keep falling ill? Moreover, my family and I are going home for three weeks' vacation in November and I dont expect to get much training done then.

I ve started to wonder whether I am asking too much from myself. Have I set myself a goal that can't be achieved. I mean, 10km road race isnt a child's play! Once I set my mind on something, I hate giving up. The feeling kills me! Am I being hard on myself?? I know I feel awesome after every run. Moreover, since I started running I have lost some weight too. Maybe I should just be patient and wait until I fully recover and then work hard to make up for the lost time.

hmmm,,, I think I should do that instead of panicking :D

  1. More than practices and trainings, believe me, it's the adrenaline rush that keeps you going!! I remember the 200 metre chimneys we would climb to hang a banner or protest- and I'm shit scared of heights, but when you get your gears on and you think of the reason you're doing it for- Man!! Those are the moments worth living for!! And there you are hanging in the midair highhh up in the air and feeling like a million bucks!!

    Just let it be. There is something our climb trainer tells us- Always trust your body and the nature around, they know how to take care of themselves. When they say "take a break" take one. When they say push harder, push!!! and everything will be alright!! :D

    See you when you run :D
