Help, I can’t breathe!!
Or is it something else?
This is becoming, again, a recurring theme. I stretch, I walk for 5 minutes, I start running, and BOOM… sideaches join Team Jason. I try running through it: FAIL. I walk it out for another 3 minutes, attempt running again: FAIL. I repeat the previous attempt; same result: FAIL.
What the crap is going on?
When I began my training and workouts a month ago, sideaches never happened. I stretch, I eat somewhat well, I sleep like crap, I do a minimal amount of core training; nothing has changed from when I started.
My legs feel very good, my lungs are good as well. My core is obviously garbage.
With my high level of frustration, I was able to dominate my weight training tonight. A small amount of redemption flowed through my body.
I expect more out of myself in absolutely everything I do. To me, success is the greatest high I can experience. I am not high at all right now; tonight was an absolute failure, and a big wake-up call. In less than four months, I have a half-marathon to run. I was unable to make it a mile before quitting due to some sideaches. What a joke.
Since I am incapable of fixing this problem on my own, I need help from you.
What am I doing wrong? What can I do to get rid of these sideaches? What I am doing is not good enough, and it is as frustrating as anything I have experienced in recent memory. I don’t need anything else to help me not sleep at night.
I am sick of FAILING.
Let us see what tomorrow will bring. Let us see what I will bring to tomorrow.
