Lake-side thoughts: Running When You Don't Want To

Thursday, July 7, 2011

running shoe in grassDay 7 ... I have to run this month in preparation for the triathlon. My son really has to run this month in preparation for high school try-outs. Neither of us love – or really like – to run. My son was sharing that he hated it and just couldn’t do it. He’s gets bored and defaults to walking. My sound advice? Get over it and run. You have to be in charge. You have say “I want to do this” and do it. Sometimes what you’re saying is “I want what this will get me (on the team, to the party, pay raise …).”  It’s a means to the ends.

Guess we both have to decide if the goal is worth it and if so, just do it.
