Looking for excuses

This time last week I didn't run because I had a headache and hadn't eaten all day.

Got home this evening and couldn't find my phone so couldn't record it on Endomondo, thought I won't bother.

Then I realised I was making excuses like last Thursday (I also have an UP so I could track it), chucked on running clothes even though I still haven't got the snazzy running tights and off I went.

As a result I had a lovely run by the sea seeing the sun begin to go down and my MP3 players random setting was kind to me with it's music selection.

Lesson of today just go out and you may be pleasently surprised. :)

  • Well done for overcoming the barrier and getting out! Glad you had a good run ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • It's surprising what a run can do for your mood, undecided before you went out but happy after when you got back. Well done for sticking with it, glad you enjoyed it.

  • it is easy sometimes to let the voices win , well done on sticking two fingers up to them and getting out there and having a great run :D

  • Yes! Certainly! Just get out there and do it! Well done!

  • Those are usually the best runs! I spend far to much time planning hat I'm going to do, intervals, long slow run, short fast etc etc etc,Sometimes if I've nothing planned I don't know what to do...you're absolutely right, just let your shoes take you where they want to go. Lucky you running by the sea xxx

  • mm I'm currently in the middle of 'excuses' mode. Not run since Monday.. hmph.

  • I don't do excuses as it just clutters your head up and makes you feel guilty, well it does me. I call it "mental tennis".

    I just go, mindlessly, slavishly, like a lamb. LOL So much simpler

  • Good for you! That sounds like a beautiful run.
