OFF THE WAGON ~ The lost week

    I'm embarrassed to admit I skipped a whole week of training. Sure, I have excuses - sore from soccer, busy weekend, packing for trip, traveling - but really I just got out of the habit. It's such a mental obstacle to be out of the habit like that. I think physical obstacles are much easier to overcome. Once I start making excuses, it gets easier and easier to keep making excuses.

    What finally got me going again was my big mouth. I bragged to everyone (including my website readers) that I would swim and run every day in Greece. I may be able to make excuses to myself, but when it comes to other people, I'm a real stickler for meaning what I say and living up to my promises. So I started training again.
