The alarm clock goes off this morning at 5:30 AM:
time to get my booty up and runnin'... literally.
I'll be 110% honest, the thought of hitting the snooze button, crawling back under my cozy my covers, and sleeping an extra hour or so has certainly crossed my mind, but I always somehow manage to fight these thoughts, push myself to get up, get dressed, and get my running shoes on. I'm sure to push myself and revisit the reasons why I am getting a running start on the day.
I have a marathon that I committed to.
I can't afford to lag on training.
I have worked so unbelievably hard to achieve the physical state that I am currently in.
I have built up the endurance and brought down my times.
I have decided to complete a life-list task.
I Cannot and Will Not Lost Sight of my Goal
I will continue to be faithful to my training plan and accomplish my goal of someday completing a marathon.
Although November 17th will not be a full-marathon, it will be another 13.1 steps toward completing my overall 26.2 goal. I will persevere through the early mornings and tough workouts. I will remain faithful to my plan.
I apologize in advance if the tone of this post is a little too serious, but training is becoming a bit overwhelming over here. I needed to find a way to put my goals back into perspective. I am only human, and I know it is certainly natural for this to happen from time to time. I hope my post today helps all of the other people out there who are currently struggling to accomplish a challenging goal. Keep your chin up and persevere. You can do it, and I know I can too. <3
How do you remind yourself to remain focused and committed?
