Tomorrow I will be going down to the new gym. I wanted to go Sunday but my back has been bothering me and today I was really busy at work.
Also, I am working on a personal challenge, which is walking a 5k race. I've got four weeks left to train, and I tell you, our running/walking coach, Danny Haralson is so motivating, and I am going to share some snippets from the emails that he sends out:
If not you, then who? If not now, when?
Let me add one more to that - "Why not you? There's also another great quote that says, "Some people see things as they are and ask "why", and some people dream things that haven't been and ask "why not"?
We are into the 2nd week - one week is down, gone, behind you and one week is ahead of you - You are one week better than you were! Isn't that awesome? How many others can say that, now, today? ONE WEEK BETTER. If the only person you have to compete against is the person you were 2 weeks ago, you are already WINNING! And in another week, you'll be that much better, that much stronger, that much leaner and that much closer to your goal. Be patient with yourself, believe in yourself and if you get down (IF! I said), then just ask yourself, "why not me, why not NOW?" Then get out there and run!
Keep up the runs! Be patient with yourself. Right now it may seem 'hard' but each week you WILL get better and in 2 or 3 weeks you'll look back and think this week was EASY! But if you quit.......it'll always be hard. A hard run is just that, 1 day, one time, a hard run - but quitting is forever.....Why not you? This is YOUR time, YOUR dream, YOUR goal! DO the runs and it's just a matter of weeks, just a matter of weeks - I promise (is this a hint?) that within 10 days you WILL surprise yourself.......Why NOT you? I can't think of a better person........
