“Never put off tomorrow what you can do today”
– Thomas Jefferson
Two years ago when I started my day it was always find the path of least resistance, I always tried to keep a resister between me and anything hard. I was tired, sore or had a headache. I will start tomorrow or maybe that would be a good New Years resolution.
Today when I woke up I had a 100 excuses why I should not run. I am tired, sore, need rest and so on and so forth. I sat down and started to play WoW and veg but, something kept nagging me? It felt like I had insects crawling on my skin and my heart was just not into the game.
As I sat there that commercial of the women in her office and there is a voice saying how much she missed the women, then the voice says “it’s me, your shoe’s”. I swear I heard my shows crying to feel the tar and concrete beneath them. It hit me at that moment, I need to get up and put on my running gear. I can say that I do not like putting off tomorrow what I can do today. I ran for the full 28 minutes (almost knocking over my Daughters best friends Mom in the process).
So today I completed week 8 day 2 of the couch to 5K. Stoked to run that extra 2 minutes to make a full 30 min but, the app says “You might be tempted to jog farther, but stick to the plan and don’t overdo it”. Last time I did not listen to advised I was side lined for 2 weeks, so I will listen this time. If all works out I should be running my first 30 minutes on Tues November 13th 2012. I definitely need to make sure not to forget to turn on my watch this time (forgot to today ><) so I can have a memory of this day. I am hoping to print out the map and when my shoes die, save them as a reminder of when I ran my first 5k 🙂
