My training schedule for the last three weeks before my half.
I CAN AND WILL DO ALL MY TRAINING RUNS. I was talking to Laurel the other day about slacking on my exercise this week and she said, “Well what about those goals you set for yourself early in the week?”
Yeah, about those…I had something going on every night this week and just couldn’t drag myself up the next morning to get to the gym… EXCUSES. I don’t think LaurelÂ qualified for Boston by making excuses. I think she went out there and just did it.
Which reminds me of this blog post I read the other day.
Tests done since 1933 show thatÂ people who talk about their intentions are less likely to make them happen.
Announcing your plans to others satisfies your self-identity just enough that you’re less motivated to do the hard work needed.
Yeah, that’s definitely been me lately.
