Today I confronted an old enemy and had a discouraging result. Yup, I stepped on the scale again. And I got immediately frustrated and angry with myself. I'm relatively easily frustrated with myself. So our run ended up being a punishing one and my patient and long-suffering boyfriend hung in there with me. Heres the Garmin info:
3 miles out and back along the river.
Negative splits do make me happy.
It am going to attempt to stop getting so easily frustrated with where I am and impatient with the road to the marathon and to getting in the shape I want. With this thought in mind I went to read a bit on one of my fave blogs: Skinny Emmie. Emmie lives in KY and blogs about her path on getting fitter, healthier, and happier. Her attitude, patience, and self love constantly impress me. On this post she has a quote from Zig Zigler. "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great." Mihkel and I have both started and I can keep that in mind when I start to get impatient with myself.
