Stuck in Motion (desc.)
I was doing Couch to 5K. I was doing well and making progress running with a friend. Friend got busy with summer job, and I was left partner-less, so I stopped running. I didn't stop being active but I stopped running. Oddly, I had almost just found out what I ran for... what drove me to keep running in the running segments even when my legs and lungs were screaming. My friend's summer job ends August 1st, it was part time at a place and stuff, and I would like to get back in to running, but I'm stuck with a problem: what I ran for, what drove me.. I could still run for that, but it would be like donating to a foundation that doesn't exist anymore. It wouldn't do any good so to speak.
Yes, I know, I really need to be running for myself when I run, but I can't ever do things directly for me. I can do things for other people for me, but when I have nothing to run for, what would I even begin to do if my legs started screaming and my soul had no drive to push me through it?
Have you ever felt like you were trudging through honey?
