shifting the goal posts

this week has flown by so fast and been so hectic that i can barely remember what i last blogged.

 i’ve been sticking to my running schedule though. even though i’ve been spending long hours at the studio, i managed to get in a morning run on monday and tuesday and i’m just so amazed at how it doesn’t seem to get any easier. i dunno, maybe it has something to do with the shifting goal-posts, but i seem to just keep struggling each time. 
tuesday’s run was difficult. my first time doing 2 sets of 4 laps each and i had to keep talking to myself to get through it. starting to feel different little aches which change over the course of the run – in fact by the second set, i had to consciously ignore a growing pain in the muscle on the inside of my right leg, just above my ankle. it bothered me so much that i actually decided to skip yesterday’s run in order to allow for recovery time. now i’m sitting here procrastinating before i go and do today’s scheduled 9 laps. it’s going to take a lot if talking to myself to get through this one. i’m at the point where i desperately need a partner to keep me motivated and unfortunately there’s no one else crazy enough to join me!
