Getting to the gym is half the battle. That’s why this week I decided to simplify my goals, and just focus on getting to the gym 6 times this week. It doesn’t have to be a tough work out for it to count as a workout, right? Well sorta… What usually ends up happening is I get to the gym, and I’m surrounded by people working towards their goals. That’s all the motivation I need. Humans are driven by competition, and I can say that it’s personally by biggest motivation. Beating the person next to me.
Sure, my treadmill neighbor today was a 6’2 girl who was running 7.2 her entire run. Not a problem. I ran intervals, so at least I finished at a speed that was comfortable for her to run her whole workout. Who cares. We were both there. Working hard, and getting better. A lot of people thought about getting better today, but that doesn’t mean that they did everything they could to do it.
One day at a time. One step at a time. One forgotten pair of work shoes at a time. I will get better.
