It's hard to beat the person who never gives up. 

Speed work run today. Run at pace for 5 minutes. Then as fast as we can go for 30 seconds. Repeat. Till we die. 

Between gasps Nicky broke in to a massive smile and said... "This is how people get fast! They just keep doing a little more each time."

Yes. And they never give up. 

The half marathon a few weeks back was not so good for Nicky. She blitzed her time but really hated the run. So much so she said these words... "I'm not going to run anymore". 

She said those words on a Tuesday. And by the following Thursday she was running. 

Never give up. 

Find someone who won't let you give up.  And don't let them give up. 

Never give up this gift. The gift that is running.

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. 

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.

You're missing out.

I poured this Post Run Pinot just before I headed out the door.  So when the run got tough.... And it did... I dreamed of my Post Run Pinot.  Home now... And it's still sitting there... Waiting.  I'll have my shower then wash down a big feed with it.  Some might say... Why not just pour the wine and skip the run bit? To that I would say... You clearly haven't tasted Post Run Pinot.  And ... You are missing out.
