I guess it was time for me to take some of my own advice.
Starting over is hard!
And I had forgotten that.
Today was only my second run after a long month of not really running.
Usually I run about a 9:40 minute mile, and before I got injured,
I was hoping to be a 9:15-9:30 regular.
Well, there went that.
Now I’m back at the beginning.
But as I was running today, feeling out of shape and huffing and puffing,
I remembered the words I always share with a runner friend of mine,
Our worst runs prepare us for the best runs!
With over a half mile to go, I started talking myself out of finishing it out.
Well, you should probably take it easy. You are starting over.
But then, I remembered those words I always preach to my friend
and any new runners for that matter!
How could I not follow through?
So these were the words of motivation this morning:
This run is only going to make me stronger for tomorrow.
