Get comfortable being uncomfortable
Happy Friday!! Anyone else doing the Friday dance? We don’t have any plans for the weekend, but I’m really excited for some unknown reason. Maybe it’s because I spent all day yesterday spring cleaning. I even shampooed the couch & carpets.
I’m getting ready to do my long run and I started thinking about how I can improve my cardio fitness level to be able to run at a consistent pace. I know I can do it, but want to feel confident in my abilities.
I’m going to start by turning one of my 3 mile training runs into 4 or 5 miles. You see I’ve gotten pretty comfortable with that distance. It’s safe and easy, I know I’m not subjecting myself to injury.
But I’m not really growing as a runner.
It’s time to redefine my comfort level because growth comes from discomfort.
- I’m not injured
- I’m strength training like a rock star
- I’m strong enough
- I have the time
- I’m have the will
- I like pain
- I am ready
I am looking forward to all of the pain hard work it takes to cross the finish line at my next half marathon, whatever that might be.
What are you going to do to make yourself uncomfortable?
What is your next goal?
Do you like pain?
