wishful thinking *

* the formation of beliefs and making decisions according to what might be pleasing to imagine instead of by appealing to evidence, rationality or reality

– Wikipedia

Thus begins my tale of folly.   You see I had this idea that I would breeze through my first day of C25K Week 4.  After all, I did just run 21 and 10 minute sections during my very first 5k race a few days ago and Week 4 calls for only 3 and 5 minute runs.  I figured I would focus on my form and running a little faster during each section or at least stretching out my legs a little.  I could see myself running lightly through the neighborhood with my faithful companion trotting smartly by my side.  I would switch gears effortlessly according to the cues of my podcast.  At the end I would feel energized and ready to conquer the world!

But then reality.  My podcast wouldn’t download, my dog wouldn’t cooperate and my legs wouldn’t stretch beyond mincing little steps.  At the end I was wiped out and ready to take a nap.  Dang.

  1. That’s how I felt last day of Week 3. Sometimes, you just feel poopy.

  2. yep, agree last time I went running I felt like I weighed 200 pounds (which I don’t)
