Week four of the “Couch to 5k” program is done. Complete. Check.
In reflecting on this journey so far, I recalled something that Chris Powell said on the TV show “Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition” He said “Life starts at the end of your comfort zone.” For me my past experience with attempting to run was extremely uncomfortable… both physically and mentally. I didn’t feel like a runner and I am sure I didn’t look like a runner.
This has definitely been both a physical and mental journey for me. Physically I have been able to accomplish what I have done so far by taking baby steps. By following the training schedule and not forcing it to go faster I am making good, steady progress. This program is teaching me patience…especially with myself.
As for the mental portion, this program has reinforced the concept of “attitude is everything.” My approach to running this time has been to mentally prepare and change my attitude. Actually, I have allowed myself to believe that I am a runner.
So are your beliefs holding you back from achieving a dream? Believe in yourself and you can make your dreams come true.
Let me help you evaluate your beliefs and get unstuck from the chaos that is holding you back.
