Lost my running partner today (my daughter) the novelty has worn off... so I'm now on my own. Felt a bit self conscious leaving the house.. hoping I wouldn't see anyone.
I went to a playing field near the house and ran (ha ha) around the football markings. I had quite a few negative 'can't do' thoughts but I got through it... I'm using the jo whiley coach and she said something about positive mantras.
I can do this! I want to do this!
So I started my 90s runs visualising an event I'm going to in September - looking great on the dance floor... not red and sweaty because I'm so unfit (yeah - after a couple of wines I think Im a pro and go for it!)
Then when it got hard and I wanted to stop i said out loud - I want to be fit and healthy... then when my left foot hit the floor - fit - right foot hit - healthy - fit - healthy - fit.... I swear it got me through!
