Wow… What is it about running that is so bad? How it get such a bad rap? Interesting conversation right?
Is it because its tough and takes effort? Is it because the first 2-3 miles kinda sucks? Yeah I said sucks. But I got your attention..
Isn’t that kinda like life? When you get started at most tasks it is soooooo hard, and it takes a ton of effort to get the ball moving. However, when we stay with it and keep ourselves doing the right things consistently, that things get moving a bit easier, and the momentum builds.
Staying Consistent builds momentum!
Wild Right? Crazy thought!
That such as in running our bodies become better conditioned, we learn from mistakes and we are better for ourselves, our families, and our businesses!
Confession: I used to be one of those guys that said, “I hate running, and the only thing that felt better about it, is when we stopped!” My dad you to say something similar, and would say, “Banging your head against the wall and running are very similar, both feel better when you stop!” -Jim Orr
However, I have come to realize that if you can carve 30-40 minutes several times a week out of your schedule to run, IT IS INCREDIBLE… Even if its a WOG!!!
We have so much screen time anymore, that its incredible to to unplug, and take the time for ourselves. This time is refreshing “ME Time” that allows us to take deep breaths, and de-stress. I have also found it as great uninterrupted time for prayer, and or take catch up on books I have wanted to read. I leverage www.Audible .com to listen to the books on my headphones. ( Nothing wrong with learning, growing and becoming stronger all at the same time.
