Ok this week because it's the last Friday of the month I'm doing Runfessions and linking up with Marcia's A Healthy Slice.
Sometimes I wonder if I really can call myself a runner. I don't go out and do races, or marathons. I don't even run outside all that much. I haven't even run over 3.5 miles, my 1 mile PR is around 9 mins although recently my mile has grown to 12-13 mins. I've only been running, not religiously, for about a year and keep getting sick, which has really taken a toll on me. So I guess it's really not that bad. But since I don't have a running schedule and don't tend to do it 5 nights a week, makes me wonder if I can really call myself a runner. Of course then I see stuff like this and smile....
Because I totally do.
I am ashamed of myself, my run times and length of runs have sucked recently. As much as I want to rack up the longer times and extra miles I just seem to tire way to fast. I'm sure this has to do with the fact that I keep getting sick, not like sick sick but run down tired nasty cold sick. It's hard to running with your lungs burning, hacking, coughing, a headache from heck, and not being able to breath right. It's like my body is rebelling against me. I really want to get back to where I was last year at this time, but have no idea how to do it.
