Six miles this morning in just under 44 minutes (avg 7:20 pace). The pace quickened each mile up to marathon pace but six was all I had time for. My right leg ached early on but seemed to improve with the run. It ached all day.
I get a daily quote emailed from runners world. The last two seemed to go along with my article on consistent training.
To be a consistent winner means preparing not just one day, one month, or even one year—but for a lifetime.
The more I thought about what I get to do, the less I realized I had to do. It was just a shift, just a new perspective, just a new and more grateful method for labeling the things in my life. Think about it—if you stopped yourself every single time you were about to say, "I have to" and changed it to "I get to," it might change your entire experience.
