Day 49 - fear

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Up running this morning again!!! While I do love the concept of the whole thing and I love the after effects, I do not enjoy the struggle!!! But my intent is to run 3 times a week until I am dead so I have to do this! When I woke this morning I did not want to get out of bed but fear made me get up!

I want to do this so badly! Not because of weight loss or the health benefits just because I want to be that person that runs 3 times a week!! I want to be her!!! Whenever I wake like this morning not wanting to go I think about ok what if I don't go!? Then the fear starts! I am 48, if I don't do this now it might be too late when I get back to it again! This is not the first time I have been on a running jaunt! I was doing this 15 years ago and I loved it but I just got out of it and stopped! It has taken me 15 years to get back to it!!! I can't stop now because if I do, I may never get back to it!!! I cannot let that happen!!!

Fear can be a great motivator!

    I can understand that, I feel the same way with my fitness walking. My fear is that once I stop wanting or doing it, I will become old and sedentary. My mom had a rough time before she passed, and I made the decision to be more proactive with my health from then on. I've had some slump in between, but now that I've restarted, I have to make sure not to fall back into that habit.
    I think your running 3 times a week is a great goal! The first step is always the hardest, but emoticon emoticon
