I decided to walk to that park and see what I could get done. I had my ice cold water in hand and I set off. A co-worker cautioned me that I could get sick. I smiled and kept walking. I got to the park and there were other walkers and runners of all ages.
I walked for 1.5 miles and then I started to jog. It was really hot. I manged to jog less than a mile. I kept questioning what I was doing out in the sun and then it hit me. I am here because I said I was going to run. I made a plan. I did not want to flake on said plan. Otherwise, it would snowball into the next day, and the next day. My mantra as I jogged was because I said I was...
In total, I did a combination of walking/jogging of 3.2 miles.
It felt great to keep my word to myself even despite the heat. Next time, I'll do the treadmill when the heat the 100s. I know it wasn't the smartest thing but it was the necessary thing. It was important for me to keep my word to myself.
If I keep this up, I just might find my mojo.
Have a great weekend friends.
