Default When the #3!! does this running get easier?

Okay,

So I'm learning to tackle. I'm learning to run through the correct gaps. I can rip and swim. All with full pads, helmet and mouthpiece.

When the holy crap does the running part make me feel less like I want to die? I'm not hoping for easy. Easy isn't part of my vocabulary. I just want to know why it is that I've been doing this for two or three weeks now it always seems like it's day one.

Practice is T/TH/Sat for 2-3 hours each time. I'm eating well. I'm sleeping at championship levels. My... how do you say... romantic desire is through the roof. While I think Hubby likes that, I'm wondering if I'm spending too much energy off the public field of play?

What the heck is up with me?

Jamila,
chances are your extracurricular (home sporting) activites are helping actually helping you by raising your T-Levels. Making you more agressive on the field.

Have you considered that you're just getting better at the running? You're giving it all you've got which is more then what you had, and this is why it is not getting easier, you may in fact be working harder. Just consider that!

God Bless full contact football!

I am with Pierre you really seem like an all or nothing kind of person. You probably have improved dramatically from when you started but you are still pushing just as hard.

My 2 cents, running sucks no matter what. This coming from a semi reformed triathlete.

Trouble is, the better you get at running, the faster and harder you can do it, especially the sprinting stuff you're doing for football.

So, it gets better when you are such a badass, that you lead the conditioning.

Your points are well made, gentlemen.

There is DEFINITELY something to the heightened T levels! I mean... I really think I'm channeling a frat boy at spring break or something. I am so not complaining.

Okay. That makes sense. And if the TRIathlete is bitching about running, I'll not complain either.

Actually I've got a bunch of Triathletes who complain about running all the time, probably because I make them do balls out sprints!!!
