Back at it With Sadie this morning

Did 10 minutes on the bike. Then headed to the treadmill for 20, 13 of those at 3.5 with a 3.5 incline. Then I tried one minute at 4.0 mph at a 3.5 incline. oh my goodness! that is fast. It seems impossible that I could maintain that speed ever, which is why I want to document here that it seems impossible. Because someday it might not be. And then I can look back and remember...

Two things crossed my mind this morning when I was doing those 14 hard minutes. The first was that I couldn't possibly do it... BUT then I told myself, "Hey, when you are doing doing this you can look back and say, "hey, I just did something I didn't think I could do." And so I did finish just so I could look back and say that.

The second thing that I thought about was how I really only had to do 2 minutes that were impossible, because yesterday I had done 12. So I had already proven I could do the twelve, and what was 2 more?

Mind games, yes, but mind games that breed success instead of mind games that breed failure -- which are the ones I have been playing for years.

One day at a time with everything....
