Frustration with Running

If I spend 15 minutes working on my putting stroke, I can begin to see changes immediately.

If I spend 15 minutes working on my full swing, the proof is readily available, right there on the camera.

But 15 minutes - even 15 days - spent running won't get you anywhere. Not noticeably, that is.

It's tough to wrap my head around the fact that I still suck - a lot. I'm no faster. I think I'm pacing myself a little better and I'm not quite as winded. My form (again, something you can improve quickly) is better. But am I a noticeably better runner than four weeks ago?

Nope. 🙂 Not that I can tell, anyway. Not really.

I'll keep at it. Four weeks down, five to go. And then I'm off on my own (I've kind of decided against C210K simply because I don't want to have to carry my phone around another couple of months).
