I went for a run this morning. I set a goal for 40 minutes. The weather seemed decent when I left; cloudy and cool. But, halfway through my run, the humidity got to me. It was tough to breath. I had sweat in my eyes and I was heating up. Plus, my route was really hilly. I knees were getting sore. Doubts swam through my mind.
Despite these difficulties, I finished my run. I wasn’t satisfied with my performance, but I I’m glad I went out and did it. I learned that I will have days like this. I learned that I need to push myself, but give myself a break sometimes. There is a grey area between risking injury and pushing your body. You need to be honest with yourself. Promise that the next workout with be better. The main thing is that I got out there and did it. It wasn’t my best. But, I got out there and moved.
Today, I challenge you. Take some time and MOVE. Yes, it will be difficult. Yes, you will have doubts. But, you will get better from it. I cannot promise you when, but I guarantee you WILL, with time.
Go after it!
