Yesterday I forced myself to go for a run. I mean, I had to force myself kicking and screaming!!
I pulled on my running pants, sports bra, and long sleeve running top. NO!! It’s raining out there!!
I put on a jacket. But it’s only 12 degrees out!!
So, what, you’d rather have 40 degrees?! No humidity. Terrific.
Oh, but my glasses are going to fog up. That’s what running hats are for.
Oh, come on, you know you don’t really want to go.
My shoe laces were a mess and I struggled to put my shoes on over my socks.
See! See! It’s a sign.
That was the conversation I had with myself. Eventually, the healthy side won and out I went.
At times I could barely see through my glasses (oh, when am I going to get laser surgery!). But, you know what? It was actually a really pleasant run. I did 11.5km and I felt great.
I hate to say, “I told you so, self, but, I TOLD YOU SO!”
What excuses are you making??
