Perseverance

“steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success”

My lesson in perseverance came in the form of a 55 minute tempo run today. I have struggled with my tempos for the last couple weeks, so today when I got home from work late and it was cold and rainy the temptation to sit out today’s run was strong.

But…

I got into my running clothes and jumped on the treadmill and cranked out some miles. I was able to complete all the increases and finish my run fairly easily. I powered through my sets of push-ups, planks, Russian twists and glute exercises.

I am so glad I gutted it out and got it done!

Did you workout today? What did you do?
