Yesterday, during lunch, I finished my class work and planned a night of jogging and strength training. By the time I got home, 7:30 pm, I was cold and hungry. Since I spent most of the weekend working on homework, I didn't have anything cooked. I took the dog on a quick walk and ran back inside. It was TOO COLD and I don't have appropriate cold weather clothes because I live in Phoenix, where it is always hot. I basically talked myself out of going to the gym because it was cold and I just wanted to curl up on the couch.
TODAY, I came home, late as usual, but I put on LOTS of layers and gloves on and took the dog for his walk. I had my good running shoes on and had good music going...and I started to jog. And I jogged and I jogged! What??!! It felt really good! There is a parking lot next to my apartments and I am certain they have me on camera…jogging back and forth. Riley started to slow down (slacker) so I dropped him off and got back out there.
I jogged for what I thought was 3 minutes and then walked for 1. (This week I was suppose to jog 3 min walk 1 for 7 times.) I did 4 sets of run/walk and then…I just kept jogging…all…the…way…home!! YAY! I tracked it on the fitness tracker and I ran/jogged for 1.5 miles. I only jogged about a 15 min mile, which is really slow, but I did IT!
The difference between what you did yesterday and what you do today can be amazing. Don't let one day dictate what you believe you can achieve! 1.5 miles today and who knows how far tomorrow!
