Runner, know thyself!

On many a morning I find myself waking up and thinking: 'Today I do nót want to go running! I really, really don't wanna. I'm going to skip my run today. Just you wait and see. I'm telling you!'

At first these thoughts frightened me. And I went to battle against them. I told myself: 'You cán't skip a run! Once you start skipping one run, who knows where it will end! Besides, running is good for you. So you háve to run!'

Then I made this amazing discovery: this is a problem that solves itself. I don't have to do anything.

Sure, when I get out of bed at 6.30 in the morning I don't want to go for a run. But I don't have to, because I always have breakfast first and a cup of tea. And after breakfast I work for about an hour on my blogs.

And after that hour the magic happens. I suddenly find myself thinking: 'I feel like going for a run!'

So now, when I wake up and I'm all: 'I don't want to go running today,' I just say to myself: 'You're so right! You don't have to. Just skip it today.'

Because I know: in about an hourI'll sing a different tune.

So it's important to know yourself. Sometimes you don't have to fight yourself. You only have to wait.

Do yóu know yourself als a runner?
