I’m pretty sure it was just hours ago I was whining “I can’t, I can’t, I CAN’T!“ until my bitch-fest about my struggles with running turned into an 11.2 K (7 mile) non-stop run. Yup, the best run of my life! I’ve never run without stopping.
Unbelievable. My strategy was setting baby goals, simply telling myself not to stop until I reached locations that were not too far ahead. Each time I made it to the goal location the voice inside my head repeated “YOU GOT THIS, PEACH. KEEP GOING TO THE NEXT POINT!” I ran all the way across the Ben Franklin Bridge to New Jersey and never stopped until I reached home. Once I stopped my legs felt like mashed potatoes so I had to keep going an extra four blocks to walk and cool down. I feel awesome. Don’t misunderstand me though, I still hate running but think I can manage to fit it in 3 days a week. I’m looking forward to cycling tonight, it’s the best spin class of the week.
Don’t listen to that voice inside your head that says you CAN’T, it’s an eff-ing liar!!
