Am I sticking my head in the sand?
I have been consistently running for 3 months now, and I still feel strained every step.
Don't get me wrong, there has been progress I've increased my speed and endurance but it is still so HARD! I guess I'm just wondering if I'll ever feel good during the run and not just after when I'm finished.
Maybe that is my problem. Maybe no one feels good during the run- just after. Have I created some idealistic picture in my head of running while the birds sing and I have a smile on my face just to be disappointed by reality?
What do you say runners? Is there a light at the end of the tunnel, or is it always dark until you emerge and begin the cooldown!
