I am here really excited for the race on Sunday, but at the same time I am also trying to fight of the cold like symptoms I am feeling. I’ve been watching everything I do in the lead up to this race, and my year has been planned around completing this.
Either way (sick or not) I will be running the race on Sunday, I just hope it will be as close to 100% as possible. As it is part of the bigger picture in my weight loss process it will be a crawl across the finish line if that’s what it take.
I was reading an article about a young AFL (Australian Rules Football) player and what he has been through and sacrificed to get where he is, and there were a couple of quotes in there that really resonated with me.
The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle
Have the mentality of be comfortable with being uncomfortable. While this is more a statement than a quote, I think I will have to put this one in to play on Sunday.
Either way, I know that my result will be a positive one on Sunday purely for the fact that I WILL FINISH THE RACE!
Until next time, happy fitness!
