Run #98 No bear to chase me

Friday, May 04, 2012

Today I set out for a shorter run because DH and I both had to be out of the house by 8, and I wanted to make sure we succeeded. Right from the start this run was a battle. I had to tell myself every step of the way that I could do 2 miles. At the end I found myself making deals with myself, as I sometimes to. "Ok girl, you can run to the end of that fence." Usually that brings back my resolve, and I go that far, or farther. Today when I was striking bargains some other voice in my head, that apparently is usually asleep at that hour, woke up and chimed in, "Sure you can. But so what? It's not like there's a bear chasing you!" emoticon I ran past the end of the fence anyway, and on to the fountain.

Maybe next time you need to growl at that voice like a grumpy bear and say "Isn't there?"

    Congratulations! Some days it's really hard to keep going. I found myself slowing to a walk and telling myself "I can't do anymore". One day another voice said, "you can't, or you don't want to?" Then I decided that even if I didn't want to keep running, I wanted the results. I still have days when I slow to a walk, but they're fewer. Next time I want to stop running, I'll tell myself AIKIGAL made it past the fence and on to the fountain.
