Don’t Lose Focus

Mr. Miyagi knew what he was talking about!  “Step back, Leilani-san.  STEP BACK!”

My legs felt so heavy while I was running yesterday, so I started thinking while I ran…  Why do I feel like this?  Then it came to me.  I lost my focus.  Lately, I’ve been so determined on running faster, on getting that PR, and on winning that online running trophy that I’ve run my legs ragged.  I need to go back to what I was before: running to make me happy.  I don’t have to be in the top 20% when I finish the race, especially when I know that I’ll pay for it the next day.  I’ve got to go back to “Happy Running.”  THAT is my goal, and if I get a PR while I run it should be counted as a plus!

I hope that you don’t lose focus like I did.  Remember why you’re doing what you do.  Smile.  Keep it up, and happy running!
