If my Mum was still around she would tell me I have been a right "Moaning Minnie" recently and she would probably be right, I've let everything get on top of me and only started to focus on the negatives. So I thought it was time to inject some positives in my life and celebrate them rather than focusing on the other stuff. When I think of the list as a positive rather than a negative it makes everything look different.
I thought we could all have a share of positive stuff that going on because let's face it if we are on this forum whether we are running or on the IC the intent and desire is there so that has to be a positive in itself no matter what else is going on and we all have that in common.
This is how I was negatively viewing things
I can't run 10km anymore
I used to walk 20km a week
I used to be a size 10-12
Spam attacks are the pits
I needed a change of perspective.
So here are a list of my positives
I'm running 3-5km a week faster than I was before I took the distance down
I'm walking 7-14 km a week, this is my destress time.
My tick box program for Strength training has produced arms that I'm now happy to wear sleeveless tops.
Joining weight watchers online has produced a 1/2 stone weight loss in a month and still going
I am very healthy (confirmed by doctors)
I have so much support and understanding from everyone on here about spam and my lack of distance. Etc.
I have this forum (❤️love, ❤️love ❤️love it.)
So with all that how can I feel that things are all going wrong, too many positives to feel negative. As you can see it's the same week just a different view, if your struggling with your running try changing the view around I'm sure it will make a difference. Even if your on the IC the positive is you want to run again, if you didn't you wouldn't be on here so that's a massive positive and that is main thing that will get you back out there when your ready.
Even if your in week one and your finding it a struggle, your here and you've done your step out the door or you are just about to, how positive is that.
Let's all post some positivity to share around. Please feel free to list a positive thing that your doing.
