I don’t feel like it. I need to study. I’m tired. I’m stressed out. I need a nap. My butts too big. I don’t like how running makes my breasts bounce. I feel slow. I don’t have time. I’m out of shape. It’s getting late. I don’t have anything to wear. I don’t think my shoes fit right. I don’t have a good playlist. I’ll start tomorrow. I have a headache. I feel sick. My hip aches.
I just don’t want to… BUT I DID IT ANYWAYS.
Today was pretty good for a Monday. I still felt tired when I woke up this morning, but once I got to work I had a little more pep in my step. I felt more present and MUCH more engaged than I did all last week.
I got new running shoes yesterday and had planned on running today, but by the time I got home from work then home from dinner; I felt too tired and worn-out to run. In fact I started getting a headache out of the blue. I decided that the smart thing to do would be to skip my workout, rest and study tonight then do something tomorrow. Besides, how could I workout if I wasn’t feeling well? Exercise would just cause me to overexert myself and then I would feel even more crummy, right?
Despite all the doubts and excuses, I went anyways and I am glad that I did. It was not my best run ever. In fact I walked a lot, but I am glad that I made it a point to get out of the house and get moving!
