It's very apparent that I need to stop messing around with this running thing. Don't worry, I am not quitting, actually going to put more time and focus into the running thing. It has become abundantly clear that I am not putting enough time, focus and dedication into my running. The pitiful time form the 5K is proof of that, there is no reason why I shouldn't have finished that faster. I know that everyone has to start somewhere but that time could have been better if I had put more work into getting prepared for it.
During my short run with my friend today, I really could have pushed a little more and maybe even gone an extra mile. After I left, my friend got in a few more miles, and I kept thinking that I really should have turned around and joined her. I should have but I had to get to the gym to meet another friend who had Bella and get to a class. After my class at the gym, I should have run another mile or two but I didn't. This is the end of the lolly gagging because I can do so much better than what I have been doing.
