I felt inspired today after reading a post on the 12wbt forum. It was from a lady who was recounting how she could normally only manage to run about 200 meters. That would have been my maximum, and a distance I was proud of, less than 7 weeks ago.
Well today she decided she was going to run 400 meters and she pep-talked herself into going the distance and ran this 400 meters in 3 minutes. Now I cannot run 400 meters faster than that. I was very impressed with her improvement in fitness.
Then she added, ‘not bad for 91+ year old'.
Now I was INSPIRED.
When I don't want to be bothered, now when I feel that I’ve taken on more than I can manage, I will remember there is a 91-year-old lady who joined the 12-week body transformation course to improve her body and realize I am younger and capable of making an effort,
By the way, I ran five kilometers yesterday for the first time,
I swam eight-hundred meters today, another first-time effort.. Yes, I am pleased.
