So I got on the treadmill today and my goal was a nice easy six mile run – I worked my legs yesterday and needed to flush them out a bit and what better way to do that than a easy run…easier said. At about 1.5 miles the excuses started flowing(this hurts/sucks, I’m tired, my legs need a break, I’m bored, I think I have to pee, I need to organize my underwear drawer…) and by mile two I had progressed to grand visions of myself relaxing in the sauna when I realized, wait just one minute here, I got on this treadmill with a goal in mind and nothing short of a limb falling off is going to deter me from reaching it! I kept on and before I knew it I hit my stride and was on easy street. At the end of my six miles I pat myself on the back and was reminded that we all struggle but the bottom line is you gotta get it done. No excuses. GET IT DONE. You will feel so much better about yourself and your body, though it may be cursing you at the time, will thank you.
