Training blues (already)

I couldn’t get myself out of bed this morning.  I just didn’t feel like getting up and running.  Looking back, I’m not real happy with that decision, because it’s supposed to be 104 this afternoon.  I tried to think about why I was dreading getting up, and I think I’m having a hard time with running not coming very easily to me.  I hear so many people say that they can just run and run and run.  After just a month of running, they’re already able to go several miles without stopping.  I’ve been training for several months now, and I still can barely hit a mile.  I’m not sure if it’s my form, nutrition, or if it’s all mental.  I hate the people who tell me it’s all in my head.  I want to run. So if it’s in my head, what’s keeping me from running?

I did do aqua aerobics yesterday.  It was interesting.  I felt like the most fit person there (besides the instructor). Not sure how much of a challenge it was, and I’m not sure I really did enough of a workout.  I swam a few laps afterwards, and that was nice. It’s nice to be back in the pool, and feel that swim come so naturally to me (not like running, grrrr!)

I have the next couple days off.  I’m looking forward to some non-running days.  Is this bad? I’m 5 months away from the 1/2 marathon and I’m already struggling.  I just keep hoping I’m on the verge of a breakthrough.
