What’s your biggest remaining challenge?

No excuses

I went for my 5k this morning. I was looking forward to it.

But then my iPod wasn’t charged.

And as I started down the road, it was cold.

I turned back after a block. But then I turned ’round again and kept going. (Neighbors probably think I’m loopy.)

Then I felt a little nauseated. (Something seems to be going around the preschool.) But I kept going (I wasn’t on my death bed or anything, don’t worry — just queasy).

I kept going. Too much thinking today. Wish I had the iPod to drown things out.

But I did it. Felt good. No excuses. If I hadn’t gone, I think I would have been just tempted to pull the covers over my head and wait for the day to pass.

    sounds like a good way to work through a slump. I have been feeling a bit under the weather too but not letting it stop me

    A slump is definitely how I feel today — just putting one foot in front of the other to get through it — figuratively and literally!

    Good for you getting the run in, even not feeling great while doing it. I have to say the vision of you running then turning around towards home then turning back to finish your run is too funny.

    It’s hard to come by educated people in this
    particular subject, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks
