They're Dropping Like Flies

So the running is going great! (For Me Anyway). My coworkers are slowly bailing out on the running. I started the Couch-5K plan over again because they wanted to start running with me. And now each day that we're all "supposed" to run, there are excuses excuses excuses. It does frustrate me because I stopped my running plan to accomodate them by starting over. I think the only thing to do is look at it positively that it gave me simply more practice.

I'm definitely not letting it affect my attitude or running though. I simply take my gym bag that I have @ work, change and just run by myself when I get home. Yes sir, I am sticking to this and am not going to stop!! I mean I was running long before they joined the group. I just really like having others to run with, and running alone is just that...alone.

They said "We'll start fresh on Monday" hmm...if they don't want to run now, what makes me think they are going to want to try again. And I wonder, do they expect me again to stop my plan and go back to where they are? I can't, I have to keep moving forward. We have our 5K that all of us are supposed to be running in 2 weeks. Running is something that I have to do and will continue it until I'm an old lady ;)

Chin up!

Love the attitude Jess! Keep up the running and just know that you are a HUGE inspiration to me and the CF community. I wish there was a way to "virtually" run together, I wouldn't bail on you!

Thank you so much Ronnie. Seriously, that just made my night!!!!!!!! Honestly can't thank you enough! Trust me, I'd definitely be up for the "virtual" running! Thanks for saying I'm an inspiration, means a ton!

That is frustrating. All I can think of is that it is a reminder of the discipline needed to stick to an exercise regime, and how AWESOME you are for having the grit to do it!
