I started training for my first 10K this week.
Today is a rest day. I’m looking forward to it but at the same time I don’t want to get too comfortable. It’s hard for me to stay motivated to go to the gym. Even if it is a New Year and I’ve got all these new resolutions and my determination to lose weight and get in shape is renewed – I still need to push myself just to lace up my trainers.
But once I hit the treadmill I’m all in.
And after the grunting and panting and sweating and after doing leg lifts and leg presses and blasting Beyonce in my ears for an hour – I feel relieved that I didn’t talk myself out of it. I kind of like that I have this inner battle going on every morning with myself. It sucks in the moment because it always looks like my lazy side will beat out my motivated side but then when the scale tips in my motivated side’s favor it’s all good. I’m not a total lost cause.
Anyway, Week 1 down – 11 more to go.
