Hanging in there…

Well, I’m still injured. 7months and counting now and it’s getting very frustrating. My main fear is that I’ll fall out of love with running and go back to ‘the old ways’. I know that’s unlikely but the fear is still there at the back of my mind. 

The fear is always there actually. It’s great when people still come up to me and mention that I’m ‘looking great’ or ‘your still at it I see’ but there’s always a pressure that at some stage someone will come up and won’t say it!

So I’m damned if you do and damned if you don’t!

Judgement was one of the issues I worked on with Dr. Eddie during Operation Transformation, before I was fearful of people’s opinions and as a result retreated into myself, now I can use the fear as a motivator.

I wrote before Christmas about using the bad times as a motivator, well there are plenty of other things out there to motivate us all. Have a look around, you’ve got family, friends, children. There are lots of opportunities to get up & go. Mostly though, do it for yourself, there are times when you have to put you first, make a bit of time to do what you want, feel better in yourself, have a bit of fun.

Time to look at my 2014 goals now, 2013 fell a bit by the wayside with no running and all but I’ll review them honestly and st the results up. I have a feeling that my 2014 goals will be different altogether. We’ll wait & see.

…and if you see me, say hello. You’re doing more good than you think.
