How many times in one practice can we want to quit?

We got there early. Intentionally.

We start at 7am. This was roughly 6:55am.

How many times in one practice can we want to quit?

At least a dozen.

But he didn’t.

One day at a time is more than a theory.

It may be the only successful way to persevere for a lifetime.

The long way is the short cut.

Try to win more than you lose

Florida State HS Basketball state finals
Seconds before tip off yesterday.

 

Try to win more than you lose. No gym workout yesterday. Had hoped yesterday’s “rest day” could have substituted for a make-up gym workout day.

No go.

Too much to do, too little time.

i did, however, catch a nice nap.

Rest trumped activity.

Sometimes our gifts are disguised as “failure”.

Lifetime exercise seems limited to people who truly love exercise

Yesterday’s run through Windermere.

 

Lifetime exercise seems limited to people who truly love exercise.

Newsflash, it’s not the magic that makes it work, it’s the hard work that makes it magic.

The refusal to quit is the secret sauce that no one talks about.

Only running three days a week as a retiree. This past week was astonishing with runs of 14, 13.1 and 10 miles.

Hidden in these numbers is the lifetime longest and second longest runs ever, in 55 years.

How is that possible?

What if we thought quitting was too difficult?

Bicycling is a great alternative when there are running injuries to deal with

 

Just imagine for a moment day dreaming about life and what you believe to be some of life’s critical success factors…

Do you fight to stay true to them?

Does it require you to be creative to keep from slipping?

Funny how easy it is to be creative and persevere when we believe these ideals are critical.

If we didn’t believe they were critical, we wouldn’t have to embrace them.

And if we don’t embrace them, we have a great excuse for quitting.

“It’s too hard.”

What if we thought quitting was too difficult?

Even in pain

quote
Even in pain. Suck it up and live like you mean it.

 

Foot is so sore, there have been many moments the past week where it’s been painful simply to walk.

Suck it up.

One day at a time.

That’s all we get.

Live like you mean it.

Even in pain.
