Sometimes we give up long before we need to.
I’ve realized that I can keep running well after the voice in my head tells me to stop for a breather.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a break is warranted – I often need to bring my heart rate down to a normal rate, or catch my breath (especially now that it’s colder weather outside) – but there are times when I’ve stopped to break, or altogether given up, when I could have – and should have – pushed through it and kept on going.
I hear Shaun T’s voice in my head yelling “Dig Deeper!”, and I do. I dig a little deeper and push a little harder and I get a little (or a lot) further into my work out. And the next time I get even further.
Let’s not be too eager to give in.
