I really did not want to go for a run yesterday.
I could come up with a plethora of (bad) excuses.
- Too cold
- Too wet
- My usual route had to change
- Weird week with New Years
- Slightly out of my routine with the kids out of school
BUT, on this chilly, windy, overcast late December day, I know that my chances to get out in nature to exercise may be limited over the next few months. So I sucked it up.
This is the magic that lets me know I made the right choice and helps me understand the power of a routine. It trumps motivation (or lack thereof) almost every time.
