Just ran another 20 minutes run with Kristian and Andreas from the basket courts. I reached 4350 meters – a 150 meters improvement.
20/Aug/08 Run: 4350 m
13/Aug/08 Run: 4200 m
06/Aug/08 Run: 4150 m
Talked to Kristian about how we hated running. It's nothing but pain. But we could agree that it felt really good – afterwards! And it's a victory every time you don't give up. The devil inside always want you to stop, telling you things like “ohhh, does it hurt a lot?? you have run 2000 meters, great job, better than laying in the couch, really, don't you feel hungry and all proud. stop now, you can run again tomorrow...” and so on, but you have to tell that little devil to zip it because you have to accomplish your goal right now. You set a personal goal for yourself and by making it and succeeding you show that you can accomplish – even when it hurts.
So every time you run you can win. You just need to set a goal and get motivated. Remember Pacino's motivation speech from Any Given Sunday?
"I'll tell you this, in any fight it's the guy who's willing to die who's gonna win that inch... now, what are you gonna do?"
