…Motivational Monday: You CAN do it!!!…

” The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You always go too far for your body. You must handle the pain with strategy…It is not age; it is not diet. It is the will to succeed.”

– Jacqueline Gareau, 1980 Boston Marathon champ

Today is Monday. Today is YOUR day.

Stop making excuses and just do it!

Start eating right, start working out….You CAN do it!!!

Here is a motivational story for those of you who still need a little motivation…

So now you should try to be Determine, Discipline, and Dedicated!

If this 70-something year old lady can do it so can you!

Happy Monday!

    It’s true it’s all in your mind! I used to be an athlete, started running at 4 until I went to Uni at 17, and pushing myself was normal. Now if I go back to it, only my mind is working, my legs and breath are definitely lacking conditioning and I have to be careful not to overdo it because my mind won’t realise that it’s too much for my actual body! But That’s how you get back to it though!

    Thanks I totally needed this. I got sick and my working out got put on hold. I’m better now and I can totally tell I fell of the work-out-train. My run yesterday was a mental fight to finish. I did it! But with lots of “ehhh you don’t want to do this… you’re body hurts just walk the rest… etc”. Working out today? Yes, I think I will and CAN.
