Just Do It
I have recently come to realise that I love the Nike phrase "Just Do It". I never quite got why that was their slogan and really did not appreciate it for what it is worth. I played Basketball all through high school and really did not tie "Just Do It" into the hoops, I am sure the way I was supposed to, but anyway, I get it now!!!
I have just recently started running regularly again and this time I am really serious about it!!!
As many of you know, I was really dedicated to my running when I crashed and tore my ACL in my knee. I was training for a marathon at the time and was up to 18 miles. I have not really run regularly since the tear and it has been killing me!!!!!
I absolutely LOVE RUNNING, I really think of it as ME time and it really is therapeutic and the best part of it is that you really do get the "runners high" that people talk about.
So anyway, back to the JUST DO IT, I really want to put that up on my wall in my closet just to remind me! So many times in our day we know that we are supposed to work out, run, hit the gym, whatever it is, but then we start to think about it all....(I sure have a lot of things I need to get done today, you know what my stomach actually hurts, well...I just ate so I need to wait a while, I really need to clean my house, and on and on) we can always think ourselves out of working out and it sure does not take much effort to do that, everyone agree with me on that one?
So what do we need to do???? JUST DO IT!!!! Don't think about it, JUST DO IT!!! You never regret it during and especially afterward!! NEVER!!! Half the time it really only takes about a half hour to get a good work out in if you get into it. So what is a half hour of your day for your health??? Seriously JUST DO IT!!!
So I am running, I am trying to do push ups before bed and sit ups as well. It is time to be in shape!!! It is time for me to JUST DO IT!!! Anybody with me on this one?
I am also so grateful for my best little running buddy ever who totally pushes me to keep going and going and going and I would have to say, I feel pretty safe when I have him by my side, Thanks Little Echo Man!!!
