So this week I had set a goal for myself that I totally blew out of the water, and I’m super proud of myself for that. My goal this week was to run under an 18:00 mile for three out of the six that I run a week. I still have one more running day and I have ran my four miles all under an 18:00 mile. I’m a super impressed with that. I am so on my way to become the person that I want to be. I have a long way to go, but I totally blew this goal out the window. Truth be told most of my miles this week was well below the 17:30 pace as well.
I’m learning here what my body can handle and what my mind thinks that It can handle. I’m learning that my mind gives out way before my body does, and if my mind starts to tell me it’s shutting down I can change my thoughts and make it though my run feeling much stronger. There was a point this week I was at the end of my run and I felt like I had given it my all. Out of no where I got the last little bit of spark and was able to kill the last bit of my workout.
This hasn’t been easy but then again nothing really isn’t easy. However getting out there and working out is easier then suffering a heart attack, getting cancer, or dying young when all you want to see is your family grew old. When you look at it this way getting fit is really easy. Getting off your put and getting a 30 min work out is much easier then suffer an heart attack, or getting sick. So I made the choice to get up and no longer allow myself to live that life style.
So I get up every morning and have some green tea with breakfast and I focus on making healthy choices. I’m poor right now so my food choices aren’t the best, but I do what I can. I make sure to eat less then normal, and when I’m shopping i try my hardest to find the best deals on healthy food for the week.
