I have been lax on my workout regimen this week because I finished my 5k training plan and I’m afraid to advance to the half marathon training. —Phew. There. I said it.—
I’ve been in denial about this point but it’s the truth. I know that it’s my M.O. to quit when I get close to reaching a goal but I seriously thought that I was over that phase… apparently not.
I need to come up with a plan of action. Although, I probably only need one step in this plan… maybe two.
- Do it.
- Be satisfied.
Plain and simple.
On a side note:
Dee said something interesting the other day: “We’ve been talking and we’ve decided that you’ve been really pleasant lately.”
Me: “Who is ‘we’?
Dee: “Me and mom…”
Me: “It’s because of the exercise. Totally because of the exercise. It does something good to my brain.”
So, here’s the question- it may just be rhetorical in nature- why (when I know the benefits of exercise and what it specifically does for me) do I still sabotage myself? Sigh. So much growing up to do.
