It's never too late
But then There I found myself, Sunday night, pissed. I was really mad at myself. I was getting ready to throw in the sweat towel again. I've been busting my ass Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the gym. My 5k time is dropping...dropping...getting better. So why can't I get my shit together on Saturday...or Sunday a.m.?
Maybe....I'm tired. Maybe...I need to give myself a break. While I'm not working on distance, the intervals and sprints are really building my lung strength and quick twitch muscles. So, no, I won't give up.
Just because I didn't long run this weekend, that doesn't mean my plan is ruined. I'm not ON a plan. Every day is a new day. Every day is a second (or third, or fourth, or fifth chance). Each morning I'm given the gift to make a choice to make it right. We're ALL given that blessing, each and every day.
It's never too late to do the right thing. It's never too late to challenge yourself. It's never too late to be the best you can be. Just ask Fauja Singh, the 100 year old man who finished the Toronto Marathon this weekend.
