How to get over a disappointing run (?)
Today was worse. I planned on five miles, got all geared up, and just fell apart. About 2 miles in, I started dragging my feet. At three miles, I had to walk to the fourth mile. Five was not happening. My legs were shaking and I was feeling dizzy. I knew I should stop, but it was just so disappointing. Dripping sweat, I stretched out on the mat, trying not to tear up.
It's going to be hard for me to get running again tomorrow. I feel like giving up, but I have a 6 mile run on Saturday, and a half-marathon next weekend. My confidence is kind of shot and I'm not sure how to get past it. Hopefully my mindset changes a bit tomorrow.
