Helping you even more with those 2 minutes
As you try to run your two minutes, these thoughts will likely go off on a loud speaker in your head:
- Why am I doing this?
- This is pointless.
- I hate this.
- I'm not a runner, I'm a walker.
- Not everyone can be a runner.
- I must look ridiculous.
- There's no dignity in running.
- I'm too old to start running.
- This is hard.
Think of these thoughts as disturbances. That's all they are. Work through them. It's just 2 minutes. You can do it. You will do it. This week.
Use these thoughts if you need counter action:
- I'm doing this because I know it will feel good, eventually.
- Though I think this is pointless now, it's not pointless to use a body if I have one.
- I hate this now, but this now is not forever.
- I can be a runner and a walker.
- Everyone with working legs and feet can be a runner. And some other people.
- I may look ridiculous. Who cares?
- There's no dignity in running. Dignity is overrated.
- I'm too old to start running. It's never too late to get healthy.
- This is hard. And I get stronger by the minute.
