Tonight I had plenty of excuses as to why I didn’t want to go for a run.
- I was in a bad mood and just didn’t feel like it.
- It’s Monday, ugh.
- The weather was gross. Super humid and misty rain.
- What difference does a day make anyway?!
As soon as I got home from work I put on my workout clothes so that it would be a little harder to say no. I put myself in timeout so that I could get over myself. Once it was time to leave for the park (the boys had football practice) I got myself completely prepared for a run even though I was still trying to back out. As soon as we parked the car I made myself hey out and go. No chatting with anyone because that might give the the excuse I was looking for. So, I got out of the car and headed off into the humid, wet weather. I slowly made my way through 3 (slow) miles.
Tonight I was stronger than my excuses.
