Running Question Challenge- What is your running weakness?


What is your Running Weakness?

While my first instinct would be to say that I'm not as fast as I want to be, I know I'm exactly where I'm at based on my talent, my skill, my effort, my training and my commitment.  Sure I could be faster but I would have to give up time including sleep and fun times and put a lot more effort into my training.

So my running weakness is my lack of patience.  I want my training to give me IMMEDIATE results.  I want the core exercises I've started with Jamoosh to give me immediate results so I can feel stronger and hold the plank longer than one measly minute.  Jamoosh can hold the plank over 100 seconds and my friend Alicia can hold it until the cows come home and go back out again . I want to feel strong and stand tall when I run instead of feeling my body crunch into a ball when I run up a hill and get tired.  With Jamoosh's money back guarantee program I'm going to get stronger and ultimately faster plus loose the muffin top.  Anyways, patience is done one step, one exercise, one muffin top loss at a time.

Happy Running!

My weakness would be I'm too hard on myself. I want to be super at everything. Super mom, super friend, super wife, super homemaker, super runner. Alas I'm just normal. I can't do it all super all the time.

Do I have to leave it at just one?!

Mine is the occasional lack of focus leading up to a race. If I am not fully focused on my race goal and running it, I won't accomplish it.

Mine is speed. I’m super slow because I have a super low VO2 Max. I’ll post about it at some stage. At least I’ve got endurance and can go super slow for very long. I also run very badly in the heat.

mine is (just one right?) mental toughness. I think I"m pushing hard in a run/race and then realize when it's done i have a ton of gas left in the tank and I could have pushed so much harder.

I'm terrified to truly let go and give it all I've got. I may push myself but I've never pushed myself so hard that I could honestly say I had nothing left in the tank when I crossed that finish line.

I would have to say my biggest weakness is what I do when I'm not running. I've always struggled with getting enough fluids down the pipe and I could eat healthier too.

My running weakness appears to be running.

Ah well.

Mine is the negative self-talk. During a run I sometimes start thinking "what if I can't do it?". But I always do end up doing it.

It's really annoying and interfering though.

Hah! Just one? Well mine would have to be lack of concentration during a run, when that happens it's usually a terrible run!
