Since today is Tuesday, I’m linking up with these wonderful ladies:
Today’s topic is My Least Favorite Part(s) of Running
Well, at least my list isn’t as long as the one for what I LOVE about running.
Unfortunately they happen. Knock on wood, I have been blessed the past few years to be injury-free.
Compared to other sports like skiing, tennis, etc, running is fairly inexpensive. But racing fees, running shoes, etc can put a drain on your wallet.
- When things don’t go right.
You can train and train and do everything right and your race tanks. These are so many variables (health, weather) that interact to make a race NOT go as hoped. Many of these are out of your control and many are in your control.
- Scheduling Runs
If you don’t train, you can get injured, not get the results you want at a race, etc. (Unless you are one of the lucky few who can just go out and run a fast half marathon with no training.) And yet, it is sometimes so difficult to get in those runs. Family, friends, work, health, weather… they can all put a crimp on your running schedule.
And that’s it!!!
Happy Running! What do you like least about running?
