Great minds think alike, eh?
My dog has many names. His actual first name is Meat. Funny stuff, but we never actually call him that. His full name is Meat Beast Bingo. While Bingo is used mostly as a formal name, Beast is what we use most of the time. Pretty cute since he is a toy fox terrier.
Well, it was hot and humid, and it turns out I failed my personal test by a LONG shot. But I still won because I did not give up. Even though I missed the mark, I was not defeated, like I thought I would be.
I accepted it and kept going. I was okay. I accepted that this requires more patience. And maybe being medium is the place I land even when I give it all I have to the point of collapse. And maybe that is okay. Maybe I can find a way to just love my medium self anyway.
Victory or defeat? Will I find myself invincible or weak today?
I need to go face my fear.
It is a personal test. I am afraid I will fail, get discouraged, and give up.
The plants are in the garden. Hubby planted the new tree, the lilac bush, and the raspberries. I got all the starter plants in the vegetable/herb bed. Now I hope everything grows. It was seriously back-breaking work. At one point, I thought I would not be able to stand up. I guess I am no spring chicken. I hope I will be okay to run tomorrow.
Today’s run done. Felt like crap and struggled, but the quick quarter was even faster today. Last mile and a quarter were easy. Did strength outside. My neighbors must think I am crazy, for sure. Let’s see what happens next week.
