Fitness Buddy Let Down
Tuesday, September 01, 2015
Since April I've been training to walk/run a local 5K. When I started I was walking a slow mile and now I'm able to complete the full 5K (mostly walking). I'm really proud that I've been consistent through the hot summer.
I've been walking with a friend. We were timing ourselves and tracking our miles, being each other's cheerleader the entire time. During the hot, humid days of August she started not showing up because it was too hot. It was hot. I acknowledge that but we changed the time we were walking to minimize the heat. Still no show. I sugguesred we move the walk inside. No takers. I walked anyway.
This week my buddy said that she wasn't going to participate in the 5K we've been training for all summer. I'm really disappointed. I'm not sure if I have the courage to do this by myself.
I'm not sure what to think, feel or what I'm going to do. I know this is, in the big scheme of things, not that important but it feels important to me. It looks like I was looking forward to this 5K more than I thought.
