Finding time for Fitness. Easier said than done, but not at all impossible.
It’s all about priorities, right? Trust me, when my alarm goes off in the wee hours in the morning, ever so gently jarring me out of sleep, the last thing I want to do is leave the warm embrace of my bed for the cold, hostile environment that awaits.
But I do it anyways. I’ll share a quote that helps me get out of bed and turn my begrudging frown upside down and stop focusing on myself. Here it is… say it OUT LOUD while you read it. Trust me on this one.
This is the beginning of a new day. I have been given this day to use as I will. I can waste it, or use it for good. What I do with this day is important because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good not evil; success not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it. May I have sufficient wisdom and courage that this shall be my record for today.
Boom. Pretty great huh? I like to memorize quotes like these during training and spit them out later during races and group workouts. I find they help me when the miles get long and I find I’m just moving forward and going through the motions. Push yourself, stop making excuses because you are capable of much more than you can even imagine.
How do you stay focused during longer training or events?
How do you make time to train during the busy weekdays?
