Hard On Myself

Well I went out side and walk/jog.I was using a podcast I have.With it being so humid and hot,I can't get my breathing right.I only made 4 60 second runs and 4 walks at 90 seconds.I felt like a smoker.I couldn't finish the rest of the program.So I walked til I was able to breathe normal.I have tried to add the map to my blog but I can't.It won't show it.I 'm not sure what I am doing wrong.
4 times around equals 2.0 miles.Yeah but I got so mad cause I have put so much work into training and this is all I can do.My body is telling me go and my breathing is telling me to stop.Is there anything I can do to improve it?? I do random hills on the bike then I speed walk on the TM.

I have been real hard on myself,and I expect to do better.I am not a quitter but man lately it's just been rough and I just felt like this isn't for me.{deep sigh}E was telling me that I just need to work on taking it outside so I can get use to the heat and humidity.Well following the program I don't run/walk today.So I will go to the gym since they don't close early today.

I didn't go to work today.I got canceled.The floor I work on is also closed.So that means when I go in tomorrow that I will float to where ever they put me,even if I don't like the floor.

Here is a picture from Boca Grande the west coast of Florida.The kids are looking for sharks teeth and they found alot too.{2006}

This one is standing on the walkway bridge waiting to see the sunset.Meals:
B: organic oatmeal flakes cereal,1/2 c of milk,cup of hot tea
L:Pasta with sauce,HM bread
S:Cheddar bunnies crackers,ice tea
D:pasta,HM sauce,and veggies,ice tea

Train hard,have fun,stay injury free!!!

Runner's World Kick In The Butt:
Don't expect everyday to be better than the last one.Some days will be slower than others,and some days might even hurt a bit.But as long as you're on the road, it's a good day.

Maybe that's what I need a kick in the butt!!!

Feeling much better today - thank you.

Wow reading your blog makes me glad I'm in Scotland where it never really gets about 28oC. It was almost too hot for me today and it was only about 22oC... and it was humid too. I can't imagine having to run in the heat. I like it when it's around freezing - that's lovely to run in. (Although my friends' think I'm c.r.a.z.y.).

Tomorrow will be a better day.
Don't underestimate how long it can take to get used to different temperatures and conditions. Even the most experienced runners get beaten up by the weather! Don't give up Mickey is counting on you.

Keep up the great work - it's hard work but worth it. You've gotta keep going because I'm counting on running with you in October.

It's not uncommon for you to feel that this is just not for you. I am sure every runner has felt that way in the beginning. Just keep training and you will find a difference in just a month. You're gonna look back at this phase and say "how kiddish could I have been" :) tons of smile...
