Good News….I’m Sick!

by admin on January 10, 2013

CharacaturewithURLI know it doesn’t seem like good news. I HATE being sick! When I’m sick, everyone knows I’m sick and my misery is contagious (I make sure of that).

In this case, however, being sick is potentially GOOD for my running goal!

When I am focused on a goal…whether it is getting fit, losing weight, or, in this case, beginning a running program, I am focused and all-in. When I’m in the middle of a program and I get sick, everything stops. I lose all momentum and focus on getting myself better.

The problem is….I usually don’t start up again when I’m well!

This has always been an issue. At this stage in the game, I’m in the analysis stage (ie. procrastination…but productive procrastination). Being sick isn’t stopping me from research, reading, and planning. Now I’m getting this illness out of my system and, should everything go according to plan, I am going to proceed completely well once I start training.

Well…that’s my plan, and I’m sticking to it. For now, I’ll continue to wallow in my self-pity of illness. Be VERY glad you are not with me now…

But next week the real fun will begin….
