If it's Friday, that means...




Quote du jour: “Frustration is the first step towards improvement. I have no incentive to improve if I’m content with what I can do and if I’m completely satisfied with my pace, distance and form as a runner. It’s only when I face frustration and use it to fuel my dedication that I feel myself moving forwards.”
- John Bingham

Exercise du jour: Going to try again for the 4.5 mile jog. I will do what I can do. Each time I fail, I fail a little farther than I did before. So it counts as progress even if I have to walk partway. Just as long as I'm out there going for it.

Done! It got later and later, and I started to wonder, but I made it with over an hour to spare.

"Each time I fail, I fail a little farther than I did before" - isn't that the sign of success looming just around the corner?

In the voice of Deuce Bigalow: You can dooooooo et!

You are not failing, you are growing and accomplishing, working your way up toward a goal.

And yes, I like the picture, too.

Mmmmmmmm. Fridays:-)

I'm learning that "FAIL" isn't always a bad thing in workouts--it means you pushed yourself past your limits. Often a good thing!

Theresa said...

Mmm, nice!

Oh yes, well done on the run as well. :)

Yum - thanks for the eye candy. I can feel my teeth decaying at this very moment (and a whole lot of other reactions too that I shouldn't write about here).

"Anyone who isn't failing now and then has stopped growing." Woody Allen - before his creepy years.
