Taming the Try
Forgetting injury, trying to train means I'm going to run as often as I feel like it. This is exactly what happened to me this morning. Finally some warmer morning, but I convinced myself that yet another rest day was needed or that I could run tonight after work. The excuses outlasted my motivation because I'm simply trying to train.
When you're going to eat dinner...do you try to eat? No, you eat. You don't try to tie your shoes, brush your teeth or blow your nose. My kids try to make their beds. Guess what? They don't get made until I take the try (allowance) away.
So today, I'm going to try and take try out of my training mindset. Wait, I meant...today I am going to take try out of my training. I'm going to be ready for a Spring marathon...end of story.
Run in Pease, Rest in Grace
