One of my favorite movies of all time is Meet the Robinsons. Maybe that is my age showing, or just my love of all things Disney, but this movie has a great message to it.
I don’t really know what happened, but after two days of running less then my goal distance (mainly out of boredom) I went into tonight’s with a renewed sense of determination. I strictly told myself that it didn’t care how slow I went, I was getting through that whole run.
I ended up beating my PR for a 5k.
This was strange because I didn’t even feel like I was working during my run. I mean I was tired, but it wasn’t like I had more fatigue even though my pace was higher. I really just sat back into my stride and kept going.
I think those nights are great, especially during training because now I have even more motivation to keep up whatever I am trying to accomplish.
If you have a bad run or two, put it in the past and in the words of Walt Disney,
Keep moving forward.
