After a week of house/dog sitting, I’m back in my own home. After a weekend chilling with my niece, I’m back to being just me. This afternoon is a much welcomed return to normalcy.
I’ve been busy most of the day: church this morning and then I took my niece out for breakfast before bringing her home. I stopped by the grocery store for some fresh fruits and veggies for the week (I brought brussel sprouts for the first time ever…now to figure out what to do with them!). I got a load of laundry going and hit the road for a run. It’s the first time I’ve gotten out since boot camp ended last Friday. I did 3.1 miles in about 35 minutes. I think running is such a serious mind game, and I lost miserably. I let the you can’t do this, just quit now voice get to me a couple times, but ultimately I finished the distance I set out for, even if it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped.
How do you overcome mind games and keep yourself moving forward (not just in regards to running)?
