And the 10K is off as well...

Yes, you read correctly.
I am no longer training for the 10 K. Actually I stopped running completely for now.
The reason is easy: I don't see any success. Up to week 6 of the c25k program, everything went smooth.
Then I got sick, so sick that I couldn't even go to work leave alone run.
That was in February.
And after that I did not get back on track.
I tried, don't get me wrong.
I really tried. But ever since I started again after being better I am stuck at the same level and can't see any success. I just was not able to get past week 6. So so so annoying. And so demotivating.
I though about quitting for a while and going for a run felt like a burden each time for quite a while now.
It was frustrating and I was not enjoying myself at all.
So today I decided to take a break from running for a while.
Even if I kept running, there is no way I could be able to run a 10K in May.
I will not stop exercising though.
I even ordered a new dvd which will hopefully arrive soon.This coming week, I will workout each day.
To prove to myself ,that I can still do it, it is just the running part that sucks currently. And I need to get in a  better shape for the wedding I am attending next Saturday.
On Thursday a friend asked me if I was going to another friends wedding and why I did not rsvp.
Turns out, my invitation got lost in the mail. The wedding is next Saturday.
Somehow I said I was going before I even said I was and then it was a sealed deal.
I am actually really looking forward to it, but I think that is because the stars for once aligned in my favor and I did not even have to buy a dress.
Last Friday we had a girl's night and somehow that topic came up and my friend offered me to have a look at her closet and we found the perfect dress in there.
Now all I have left to do is buying shoes but I already looked online and picked a pair I will look at tomorrow and if it does not hurt like hell or something I will take that pair.
This is a huuuuuuge relief because currently I do not have the time to go dress shopping (I don't have the money either btw) because I am working on my thesis and I feel like I can't be wasting time by not working on it.
Well, this is what is going on in my neck of the woods right now.
Have a great, productive week, everyone!
