The problem with training is that you never feel like you did enough or there is enough time to do what you want and keep up at home. Today was Strength Training with my friend, but the problem was life got in the way. My husband last minute needed me to do some errands for him which meant I didn’t get to the gym when I wanted. My friend and I still managed to do a few things and then I spent some time on my own Strength Training and doing Abs. And for the love of all that is holey, can someone tell me when all these Ab exercises are going to kick in!?! I am so tired of not seeing any toning with my abs. I can’t be the only one.
Somehow I still managed to squeeze in an hour workout, plus a 30 minute run on the treadmill. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself (and I do).
Am I making progress????
Can I do this?????
What was I thinking??????
I just read an article about how runners never feel like they are fast enough and this keeps many from joining running groups. Even elite runners, don’t see themselves as they should. I wonder if this is just human nature. Yes, I know that there are those that think they are better than everyone else, but I believe these individuals are not the norm. That is probably why we often notice them and roll their eyes at them too.
I believe most of us look in the mirror, the scale, the pant size, the time on the treadmill and it just never seems to be what we think it should be. We are plagued with self doubt. We are are harshest critics and it is so easy to pick out the flaws. But I guess the real test is what we do with those feelings? Do we pack it in and say, “Never mind I will never be able to do this. I will never be good enough. What was I thinking.”
I say no. Not that I think I know what I’m talking about, but I do know what I need to do. I need to keep on moving. I need to keep believing that maybe, just maybe I will be able to do this. They say it really is mind over matter and if I don’t believe I can do this, how will anyone else.
