I'm training again for ANOTHER marathon (and half)! This will be number 11 marathon and I don't know right off how many halves I've done but it's at least the same but most likely many more.
There are days when I just don't wanna....don't wanna run, or ST, or just do.
It's like the voice of a little child whining about doing what she knows is in front of her, but would rather just sit.
So what do I do on those days? I go into robot mode! Yep, I blank it.. no not blanket.. BLANK IT! The IT being the thoughts of sedentary, of passing on what I have planned, to just busy myself with other things and let the time get too late to do what I could have done first.. and that being taking care of me.
I just go into an action mode....not even letting the list of excuses build in my mind. I kind of duct tape them, or put my hand up to them, and keep putting my running clothes on...getting my water ready, my keys, my gadgets synced and step out the door. By the time my mind catches up with my body.... I'm already out there.
With races now on the calendar it's much easier to tell myself.. if I want to perform well, I MUST put in the training...and that means kick the excuses to the curb!! After all, I am worth this!
