Rainy Days

There are days when it will rain.  But is that enough to make you stop?  Or will it just be one of those excuses that you use to not go out and run?

I hear a lot of different people complain that they couldn't go out for a run because it was raining.  Now I understand if it was a thunderstorm, but in most cases, the times that they 'could not' go out for a run was on a day when it was just raining.  Sometimes, we use little things that aren't hindrances and blow them up to make them seem as if they were a hindrance.  If you truly don't want to do something, you will find a way to find an excuse to not do that.  In the case of running, a simple rain shower can stop millions of people from going outside for their daily jog.

The only hindrance is the individual.  There will be rainy days.  There will be sunny days.  Both of those days will not push you into or pull you away from running.  You're in charge.

If you're in charge, then you need to have resolve to do what you need to do.  Take the right steps to keep your resolve and push forward into the person you want to be.  Faltering is weakness and you don't have time for that.  Rain or shine, it shouldn't matter because you can still push forward.  Be smart, be strong, and push on.

(yesterday, I ran 5.03 miles in 40:35, an average of 8:03 min/mile, it was a nice little run.  Today, I just had a nice break.  Tomorrow is going to be a longer run.  I'm working on a new training method, running 2 out of 3 days... unless I feel like continuously running.  My goal is to get to a point where I'm running about 2 hours a day, hoping to get closer to running 4 hours ever so often.)
