Are you going to run today? I asked my daughter Sophie, who was the captain got New Canaan Rams cross country & indoor track. Why bother she said, it looks like our spring track season most likely will be canceled. I’m just not motivated.
I found myself thinking the same thing when I went for a bike earlier. It took about 30 minutes of me battling myself mentally with negative thoughts. Why still train so hard if the Ironman I’m supposed to do is canceled or what’s going to happen in the coming weeks or months.
Finally...I was able to quiet my mind and those endorphins ( we all crave ) kicked in! In short it changed my attitude and I felt better.
Sophie I said, I know it’s hard to stay motivated in times like these but you have to run for yourself not because of the circumstances around you.
As I was driving to pick some things up I saw her running... that’s my girl I yelled to her.
She too had a good run and changed her mood.
What’s my point... not sure really but I guess we all have to find our inner motivation in times like these and keep doing what we do.
Changes have to be made but everyone can adapt its good for our brains.
WHAT‘S YOUR INNER MOTIVATION?!
