Goal: Jump over mental hurdles

I’ve been feeling horribly guilty this week. On two run days this week I woke up feeling like complete shit. I felt tired, drained and completely unmotivated. No amount of coaxing from my husband was going to work. I was not getting out of bed at 6:30AM to run in the rain. Nope. Not happening. I just had one thought in my head: I don’t feel like running, I don’t feel like running…

But of course after I decided not to go I felt even worse. There I was: an able-bodied woman moaning about being tired, refusing to move. Although I physically feel better for giving myself a bit of a break I’m left with that regret over giving into that childishness behavior. Like people say, you don’t regret working out, but you do regret when you don’t.

So my goal for the rest of this week is to think less and run more.
