Definitely feeling the #wednesdayworkout 😂 tried getting out of bed and well, I basically had to roll out.
So the next two days I might just be doing lots of stretching and walking 🚶🏻♀️ The only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen. But remember your body does need rest !
THE IMPORTANCE OF #REFLECTION. .
Last week I was due to do a 50+ mile week, but after I cocked up on long run Sunday and an unintended rest day, it sat at around 44. I was disappointed. What an arbitrary disappointment that was. But at the time I felt like I could only have been proud of myself if I reached the big 5-0, and the fact I had an unintended rest day because my body was saying “no” made me feel like I didn’t have enough mental grit to put the grind in. .
I often joke to people that I don’t have much mental strength, but I think the embeddedness of that joke in my life has meant that whenever training doesn’t go to plan I blame it entirely on my mentality rather than the simple reason of....maybe my body needed a rest, or needed to run slower, or maybe something else was more important. .
It’s ridiculous to think that missing one run and cutting a long run short last week meant I couldn’t feel proud of myself. To think that this time 4 years ago I was diagnosed with #ChronicFatigueSyndrome puts things into perspective. I funnelled all my energies into recovering from that, and eventually running and exercise played a key part in the process. I’ve been “recovered” for over 3 years now and I thank my lucky stars I was able to mend myself fairly quickly. I’m the fittest, strongest and healthiest I’ve ever been. And *that’s* what I should be proud of. .
There is no correlation between running X miles and being a strong and determined person. There is no correlation between resting your body and being mentally weak. There is just me, and all of you, dedicated and committed to whatever it is we hope to get out of this funny ole thing we call running.
