Wow! By now I was supposed to have reached my goal. By now I was supposed to be in the "maintaining" phase. By now I was Not supposed to be here, in this rut. Right? Well, life doesn't care about your goals and your body doesn't care about what "yoU" think it is/was supposed to do.
Truth is that I've been injury prone since October 2011 & instead of taking ALL the time I need, I keep rushing back in only to have to sit out longer. So today I decided that I will simply "Do What I Can Do". No more, no less. No more pushing my self BEYOND my or my body's limits just to hit some random goal that I set on a calendar! No more beating myself up when/if I don't reach that goal.
From now on, I will simply do 1 mile if that's all my body is telling me to do. Even if it takes 18 minutes, when my ultimate goal is to do a 10 minute mile. From now on, I will simply do 1 set, if that is all I can do that day. I will even take 5lbs OFF the weight if need be. I've realized that the cost is FAR TOO GREAT-to my body and my soul; if I push myself too far, too hard, too fast.
So here's to me...doing what I can do....and Loving me NONE the less!
