Yes, sad but true. My brain is a liar. Even sadder is that it took me this long to see it. I believed my brain's lies for years!!
My brain tells me: EPIC FAIL. Your run was sub-par and slow. Well, tonight I FOUGHT BACK!!! I told my brain to stop its lies. Yes, my run was slow. Yes, I was disappointed that I wasn't at my normal speed and time, but it was in no way an epic fail. I kept going, cramp and all. I didn't stop. Yes, I slowed to a walk twice, but I kept going. My time was 1 minute 39 seconds slower than my "normal" time of about 20 minutes. BIG DEAL!!! I still succeeded at finishing the two miles!!!
I DON'T CARE ANYMORE!!! I will no longer believe my brain's lies. I AM NOT AN EPIC FAIL. Yes, I have high standards, yes I expect perfection knowing full well that it's not possible, but I AM NOT AN EPIC FAIL!!!!!!
So TAKE THAT LYING BRAIN. I AM NOT AN EPIC FAIL
