If the heart is in the right place, the rest will follow.
It is so easy to get caught up in the game of numbers. It is probably why I have been feeling so unenthused by running of late. I know what I was capable of and I am no where near the mark.
If I were to only look at numbers, today's park run was yet another bad training day. I was dealing with some pain and decided to break the run up with two mini walks. When I picked up the speed and broke into a jog, I found that I wasn't panting. My breathing did not feel taxed.
My heart was serving its purpose by keeping me going without me feeling like I was gasping for air!
There has been a marked cardiovascular improvement since the start of this month.
Whilst it makes sense to look to numbers as markers of progress, it is important to remember that there are many facets to progress because progress is not linear. The only way to remember that is to not get too caught up in numbers.
Over here, I put good stats and bad stats because the journey I want to be on is not only illustrated by PBs .... but what it takes to get them.
Have a wonderful weekend all!
