Thank you so much to ClaraBelle who posted a comment on this blog a few days ago.

She talked about looking forward to a run, rather than dreading it, or seeing it as a chore ... like we do with cleaning the bathroom or doing your gst return!

We've heard it all before right?  "Choose your attitude" or "Thoughts Become Things" etc etc

I think we've been so bombarded with those "Think big to create health and wealth" ideals that we've become immune to them.  Disinterested.  Leave that to the happy, clappy over the top, want it all Americans.

We don't want it all.  We just want a good run.  So try it.  Say to yourself ... "I'm looking forward to my run today".  Then say it again.  Then again a few more times.  I'm going to do it.  "I'm really looking forward to my run today".

What have we got to lose?  The feeling of "can't be arsed so might bail on myself"? Yep.  Let's lose that.

Best Run Ever

Best run ever.
And by "run" I mean "sitting on my bum hashing life out with my best friend in the whole world who if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be running and I can't believe she can't because she's busted her archilles".  That's what I mean by run.  We didn't.  But we did.

Read this if you're about to give up...

If you are struggling to stay on track know this... You are so close. So close to success. So close. You just can't see it. That's why it feels so far away.
If I told you that I could see it and it looks amazing and it was just around that corner you would keep going. You wouldn't stop.

I know you can't see it ... But it's so close. Don't give up now.

It really is just around the corner.

I hate my body.

Urgh. I hate my body.  I went to yoga tonight.  Twisting and turning my flabby and floppy and wobbly bits.  I hate my body. 
I love my body.
And just like that... In the middle of camel pose... Everything changed. I love my body. And I'm gonna start treating it with the respect it deserves. 
I love my body. 
For the very first time in my life ... I love my body. I've hated my body for so long now. I've been treating it like it's a useless failure that lets me down and embarrasses me constantly. 
My body ... I'm so sorry. 
Tomorrow I'll stand tall. I'll make no excuses. I'll be grateful. 
I. Love. My. Body.
