I was talking to my daughter the other about her P.E. class and she said her teacher grades on effort. I told her “so you better try, and that includes running (which she hates)”. She then proceeds to tell me she does try but she just isn’t a good runner. I asked when she stopped running, and she said “after a couple minutes.” I begin to lecture her on “effort”, and pushing your body past it’s comfort zone. This led me to think that not only children have this issue, but it’s hard for adults to overcome also.
So, here is my challenge to all of you: Just when you think you can’t go faster, harder, heavier, one more minute, … GO faster, PUSH yourself past what your mind thinks you can’t do. You will be surprised and proud of yourself.
I want to hear from you to see how you pushed yourself.
