Sometimes the day doesn’t go as planned – especially if you’re someone living with chronic pain. And that’s OK. I used to be one who would beat myself up when I didn’t hit my mark for a run – it would ruin the rest of my day. But somewhere along the way, I learned to give myself the space to be gentle with myself. It’s allowed for growth – both mentally and physically – that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise.
Today wasn’t a good run day, but I still clocked in 3 miles, which is more than I would have had I stayed in bed.
Get out there and do something that challenges yourself today, but remember to be patient with yourself and understand that mastery doesn’t happen overnight.
