Happy Motivation Monday!
Pushing yourself a little more every day to achieve your goals is a great way to challenge yourself enough to see major changes in your body. Every workout push yourself a little bit harder.
This morning I ran through the mountains of North Carolina. I headed into some trails near out hotel (Biltmore) and got completely lost. I wasn’t smart going in alone, without a phone or a map – it was just me and God. I was about 40 minutes into my run when I realized I didn’t know how to get out.
I started to panic a little because I was getting fatigued but thought, I am totally fine to keep going for another 20 minutes of hard running. I’ve pushed myself harder, was a lot more tired and have run longer distances….just keep going, don’t quit!
I came to a clearing and saw the Inn through a huge open field…I ran through very long grass but kept up my speed until I got to the hotel on top of the mountain.
WHAT A WORKOUT! I was so happy that I kept pushing myself, that I overcame my own fear and trusted in my training!
Everyone has had those moments when they wanted to give up. What is your experience and how did you overcome?
