Over the weekend I finished my first ever comfortable five mile run, by comfortable I mean I could have gone on for some more time, I had no side stitch and I was not out of breath. I stopped because my time was up and I had other plans for the day. I was expecting to be happy with my run instead I was really disappointed, does this happen to any of you? I feel like I am never satisfied, in my sane mind I know I should have been happy with my run because I have been really trying to get my breathing in order and so for somebody who would feel like a dead person within 30seconds of jogging I know I have come a long way yet I found myself complaining about how I should be putting more effort and how by now I should have been much better.
I feel like I can never be satisfied. After every workout, every run or every measurement I am usually disappointed in myself. I am constantly trying to reach 100% and somehow I stop at 80% effort
T says I am doing pretty good and is always surprised by my reaction..initially I used to feel it is good to be not satisfied because the minute you are satisfied you stop wanting to improve and that's no good but now a days I feel it is important to be satisfied with yourself, it is important to be happy and to recognise effort you put in. You can always improve without feeling disappointed in yourself.
This is something I definitely need to work on, I need to look at how far I have come while keeping an eye on how far I need to go :)
Do any of you feel this way ever? What do you do?
