So in about 19 weeks I'll be doing the Chickamauga Marathon. I paid for it, which actually I think is part of the psychology of doing these things - signing up far in advance. You know the old, sure seemed like a good idea at the time. I could back out of it, just not do it, not show up,... But since I laid my money down, I will do it. I'm not going to throw the money away.
For various reasons, it was just difficult to do what I had planned last week in preparing for Chickamauga. The worse was Saturday morning, I was up early, which is normal, looking at the schedule - it called for a 14 mile walk. I did not want to do that - just didn't feel like doing it. So in my brain, it was sort of like a ping pong ball going back and forth from don't do it to do it. The do it won probably because I paid for it : )
Sometimes it just comes down to doing it the Nike way...
Their slogan is actually pretty good. Hey that reminds me, it's almost time for a new pair of running shoes. I usually buy Brooks (Ghost), maybe I'll try Nike this time.
So far this week, motivation has been better.
