A Frustrating Run…GRR!

I struggled with my run on Sunday. I was supposed to run with a partner and  overslept. GRRR! So I decided to get my boys to get out and go with me.

They would fish and I would run. They were excited! We decided to drive to the canal. Our was beautiful and there was a nice trail there. I got out and started to run but I just didn’t feel safe. I did not want to run alone while my boys were fishing in rushing tidal water. GRRR #2


We decided to go to a park with a trail and pond. Win-win right?. I got it if the car and went to look for my headphones, I left them home. I decided I was going to run a mile and then watch the boys fish. It was the toughest mile ever! It felt like my get were cinder blocks. I pushed through the mile (barely) and watched the boys fish.


I was still frustrated and wanted to do more so I decided to do tricep dips, pushups and planks. I felt better. But the boys were frustrated because they didn’t catch anything.



I made it up to them by taking them to another pond in the area and they caught a few there. It ended up being a great day for all of us.

What do you do when you are frustrated?

  1. I’m sorry your run was frustrating, but glad you were able to salvage the day! What running shorts are those? I want to get some actual compression-type shorts but nothing TOO short, which is the problem I’ve run into so far. Yours look like a great length, though!


  2. When I get frustrated, I push through it for a mile or two. When I am done, I tell myself at least I did something. At least you salvaged the day for you and your boys! I don’t blame you for not feeling safe and changing courses. I probably would have done the same thing in that situation. Good call!


    • That’s exactly how I feel Mary. I didn’t want tip get to the point where I’d be so frustrated I wouldn’t want to run for a while. I like to go with my gut as far as safety is concerned. Better safe than sorry. Thanks for reading and commenting.
