Oh dear lord, stop me. I’m about to go out for a run! And yes, I’m obviously procrastinating because who stops to update a deserted blog before going out for a run.
I’m procrastinating because I’m scared. Isn’t that ridiculous? Some part of me just doesn’t believe that this person has run 3 marathons and is terrified of a little 3 mile jog. I can see how beginners can hate starting a running program.
So, the goal is this: just go out and do it. Run slowly and simply plan to finish the run. That is all there is to it. If I go fast (which I know I will) I’ll die and need to stop and feel defeated.
Hope all of you real runners out there are getting along well…
