Hi guys just finished week one today and got a bit of a surprise . I was sitting in my office getting ready for my third run of week one and of course the weather was just awful. So there I was thinking I’d put it off for the next day, checked the weather forecast and of course ..... rain for the next few days. I had a dilemma !! Do I go or do I wait for the next clear day ?! So I rang my friend who does iron man and is really supporting me on my quest to get my fitness back on track ( I’m 52 I smoke , I’m 11 stone ... get the picture ?) thinking she would let me off the hook and say no it’s really bad out there just wait for a few days . No !! She said suck it up and do your run!!!
So I went . Howling wind and horizontal rain and freezing . AND I LOVED IT !! When I finished I felt I had climbed Everest , been on an adventure, found the holy grail !! It was amazing . For some people it might not sound much but I know there are a lot of people out there who need that iron man training friend out there to tell you to suck it up and get on with it as one excuse just leads to another .
I just thought I would share this with you to inspire you to just do it even when you really do t want to . You may be surprised and surprise yourselves.
Wish me luck for week 2. I know it isn’t always going to be so inspiring and I will be looking to you all for support when it’s rough 😅
