It was cold. I was tired. My legs were sore.
We’ve all been there… Struggling to lace up and leave.
My run this morning was a bad one… But a bad run is still better than no run at all.
So I pushed for fifteen minutes and did the mile I needed by walk/running until I had finished.
I can’t shake the feeling that I’m a failure since I didn’t finish the run I planned. How silly! My rational brain realizes the irony since not even 30 days ago I completed a half marathon!! One fifteen minute run doesn’t define me as a success or failure — and one failure isn’t final!!!
Today I will spend time stretching the soreness out of my legs and back and remembering that I am more than a bad run!
What do you do when you’re feeling tired and unmotivated?
How do you bounce back from a bad run?
