I don’t know how he does it. He has this weird sort of self- discipline. The Boy and I were talking about how strong he is, just the other day. My Guy can decide he is going to run a “race” on X-Day and pull up a training plan on-line… then truly follow it and be “race ready” by that day… Just like it was a real race. Seriously!
On Sunday, he went out to RACE! I sent him off- puttered around- had my coffee and answered a few emails… then I went outside and sat on the front stoop- waiting to cheer him onto the “finish line.” When he came into view I did a phew WHOOPS and “GO BABY’s” and generally made him smile! (Just like I would do at a real race!)
He rocked it too! He almost ran a PR! It was crazy! He did so good! I am so proud of him! He has a crazy ability to focus and make it happen!
I could never do that. I am so less disciplined than he is… I would think to myself… oh I do not need to train so hard- I am not really running a race… I can rest today. LOL It would be so difficult to stay on task. He is planning to run one more before the wedding. CRAZY!
I need a little dose of THIS smiling sunshine and discipline! (Oh yeah- I am going to marry him- I can have a good dose of him whenever I want!)
