Nothing is achieved through torture

Anything you achieve through torture will be short-lived because your mind isn’t enjoying the journey.

If you find yourself making excuses not do something, that’s the time to re-evaluate your reasons for doing it at all.

    Ah but how do the tortured looking runners feel when they get home and see they have run a PB?


    • BrendanDunne says:

      From personal experience, my fastest times times were achieved when I felt like I wasn’t running very fast. Those were the days I used to take notice of my times, these days I only exercise for fun.

        Did you do a lot of running?


      • BrendanDunne says:

        Not in lot, however, when I turned fifty I decided to run a five mile block. Being competitive my time was important at first but I enjoyed it a great deal more when I stopped timing them. I would have asked the same question of you, however, anybody who’s considered becoming a professional athlete has a competitive mindset that isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. I believe you will always try to challenge what you can accomplish until your body says, that’s enough.
