Davidg, So what did you think of the post? I appreciate the scolding and your right. Like I said I got into a slump and am out of it now, but that was not the thrust of the post. just trying to help here. I've been running consistantly,, for over 40 years, with numerous sub 3hr marathons, including 4 Bostons, blah, blah , blah. Pushing 68 and still run avg of 35 miles/week plus 5-to 6 hrs/week of Stand up paddle boarding. hey i'm retired and tired lol Im not as fast as I was but an honest 10 min/mile pace... I mentioned smoking as to encourage those who may smoke, that they can get in shape also. That is, dont let that stop you. As somebody said, don't let lack of perfection keep you from doing something. My past training arguably could qualify, me as someone a newbie may want some tips from , thats all. The training, et al trumps the minor " sin " of smoking. Yes it is a nasty habit and hopefully I have turned the corner on it. But if not, I certainly will continue to train. Thanks for drawing that spiel out of me?
compiler, the difficulty of getting out the door is exactly my point.
We dont want to get out there, cause we dread the workout we planned. So just commit to getting out there and do as little as you want. You want to develop the habit of that first and then the type of workout will hopefully flow from there and that part of it will be come habitual. It's a subtle strategy, but I believe it works. Another point, I have never come back from a workout session and said, " Darn, I wish I hadn't done that " You know it's very difficult to get 100% in anything, but working out is extremely close. Its a great stress reliever,as Im sure you know. Nike said it best, has there ever been a better slogan. Just do it!
