The worst part about running: getting out the door. All day at work I’m pumped, can’t wait to get off so I can get home throw on my running clothes and jolt out the door. Then dun dun dun, you get home and you don’t want to do anything, it’s like you never had that pumped feeling to run earlier in the day. You just want to relax and enjoy the rest of your evening (read a book, watch some TV, anything but running). I still run but instead of getting out the door immediately after work, I mosey out about an hour after I’m home which is no bueno. Once I start running, I love every minute of it and push myself further. Does anyone have any feedback? On a happier note, my running times are getting a lot better. Mondays 4 mile run was completed in 38 minutes which came out to be about 9:34 /mi! Later this month, Old Tucson Studios is holding a 4 mile trail run that I will be part of. Hopefully if this run is as good as Mondays, I could potentially win a medal for my age group!! What a feeling of accomplishment: making a goal that can completely change your life and sticking to it. Nothing will stop me from running this marathon. I WILL NOT make excuses when the Nursing Program starts in August and my head will be buried in books. You can only accomplish goals by motivating yourself. If you don’t have the motivation and drive to finish a task, it is going to be very hard and odds are you won’t finish it. If you have the motivation, it’s still going to be hard (I’m not going to lie), but you are pushing yourself to do the goals you have set for yourself and that by itself is an accomplishment! All you need is a little discipline from yourself and you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
