This week, I began incorporating running into my work out schedule, and to be honest it was hard. Even though I was alternating between running and walking, I expected to just be able to run as long as I want, but that was not the case. Immediately, it was easy for me to be discouraged and tell myself ” this is hard and I can’t do this,” but then I was reminded that this journey is a progress. It’s not going to be a big change overnight, but little by little I am going to build on running. I’m mostly writing these thoughts for myself, so when I am feeling incapable, I can reread this and remind myself that perfect, fast, long distance running is not going to happen immediately or possibly ever. Instead I need to rejoice in every little addition to my training and be thankful for the little things like beautiful sunny, shorts-wearing weather, Bokeh who encourages me by getting excited when we begin to run, delicious post work out green smoothies, and this song, and this song that pump me up!
