Last night I went for a run. For the last few months I’ve been doing a variety of run / walk combinations. I set off, with one eye on my watch, counting down until the first chance to walk.
And then I decided not to.
My legs were protesting but I know from experience I always struggle for the first kilometre or so before I warm up enough to find my rhythm.
I decided not to stop and walk.
So I didn’t.
Once the decision was made it didn’t even occur to me again at any point during that run to walk.
A reminder that when it comes to this fitness stuff, your mind-set matters. The things you tell yourself about what you can do and what you can’t, become your reality.
Decide. And then do.
