Anyway back to taking what the road gives you. In general, I have been super relaxed about what each training day holds, just really taking what the road gives me and not judging it or myself. The habit of my fall training of internalziing every bad run and letting it take some of my confidence is not going to happen any longer. I am fit! I am actually very fit! I am super fit!! hehehe You get the gist! Anyway the habit of letting my bad easy days somehow define how my perception of how fit I am is no longer a habit. A bad and/or super slow easy day is no reflection of how fit I am, it is just that my body is tried and trying to recover. Pushing it to run faster does me no good at all. It just digs me a bigger hole of more recovery time and limits my ability to run fast when I need to. Now my mind clings to my workouts as how fit I am and I have had some amazingly fast workouts in the last 6 months. I have remember all those rather the bad days.
I once read a quote about not focusing on what is going wrong but focus on what is going right.
I am fit!
I am healthy!
My body can handle an amazing workload that even surprises me at times.
I am strong-minded!
I have a huge support system!
I have every resource I could possibly need to do this thing.
I have faith!
I will get there one day and until then I will take what the road gives me!
