So I signed up for a 10km road run. It turned out that the weather played up. It was grey. Dark clouds and super tempting to stay at home.
However I went out. I have the good shoes (Check), I have running clothes that is smart and even colourful. I took pre-workout powder. So I just got on with it whilst still not really fancy going out. Whilst driving to the start area I was even wearing a long-sleeved shirt and a thin rain jacket. And I also have a running belt for keys and mobile phone. To top it all I have my phone with a ROCK running spotify music list as I must listen to music when running.
All was set up so I registered and it started to rain………….. I don’t do rain but it was a good crowd and I started slow and actually did a good time. Even enjoyed it.
Make it happen. If you can get tempted to get distracted or procrastinate then make a list
- Think:How will I feel afterwards
- What else constructive would I do
- Do I have the equipment I need
…………Yes it’s actually that simple. I never thought about this before but it does work. You can make your own list but I would not recommend one that is too long.
Afterwards the weather improved and I felt great
in fact so great that when I got a WhatsApp about 1/2 hour after getting home asking if I wanted to play tennis I didn’t hesitate. To my big surprise I actually had energy. Lots of water. Lots and lots.
