When life slams you to rock bottom, pulling off the daily run may be the most difficult move you can imagine. If you are feeling this way, it’s time to block out the pain, the world and get out that door and let the run shoulder some of your burden. Perhaps if you instill this concept deep in your consciousness it will propel you and make the first steps possible. Once out the door, your mind will be flooded with a million reason you need to be anywhere but out running. If you avoid all thought for a second, everything that the run has to offer will have a chance to fight it’s way in, perhaps offering you strength, clarity and hope. If even for a few minutes. Repeat over the days ahead.
Think of this and make this tool a part of you during the run today.
