I’ve got a big confession for you today … and yes, this happens to coaches/personal trainers, too.
The other day I was NOT FEELING my workout. In fact, I was dreading it.
The plan was to go for a run after I had taken my son, Max, to football training.
It was windy, dark and cold.
I kept making all sorts of EXCUSES not to work out.
It wasn’t because I needed a day off. It was just one of those days.
So here’s what I did …
I put on my workout clothes and laced up my running trainers so that when the football training was finished I was ready to go...
I told myself: “Just go easy for 10 minutes, and if you still don’t want to run, then just walk the rest of the way.”
And, you guessed it: after 10 minutes, I felt so much better I decided to keep going.
Was it my best run ever? No.
But it didn’t have to be.
The important thing was that I showed up for myself.
The workouts you don’t want to do are the MOST IMPORTANT.
They solidify your commitment to yourself, your health, fitness, and your goals. They lay the groundwork.
So the next time you are thinking of ditching your healthy habits … tell yourself: JUST 10 MINUTES.
