as i was preparing to work out yesterday, i ran into a colleague in the locker room who had just finished a run. of course, i had to grill her about her fitness routines (it’s what i do). she was visibly elated – basking in that post-run glow. she mentioned that she used to hate running, but at some point, she resolved to just stop thinking about it so much and just do it (some sports slogans ARE true). now, she not only runs, but actually enjoys it! i definitely felt like a could take a page from her book.
way too frequently, i let my overactive, type-a mind take over my fitness routines. this is fine when it translates into scheduling the workouts on my calendar and writing down my weights for strength training, but sometimes, i know i need to just let go.
