Today, I faked being energized at work. Granted, I needed a bit of caffeine to get me going (and to pick me up again around 1:30), but I didn’t sleep well last night, so I was happy to pretend like I had.
I faked wanting to run. I didn’t really want to run, but I read Caitlin’s recap of running 20 miles and I thought to myself, “I really have no excuse.” So I laced up my shoes and cranked out 4.93 miles in one hour. A 12:10/mile pace, but I’m happy with that. I know I’ll get better (if I can get down to 10:45/mile by October, I’ll be so thrilled).
Anyway . . . I faked it. I faked the enthusiasm for the run, decided on my running plan and just did it. And it was great. I feel incredibly accomplished, even if it is a much shorter run in the grand scheme of marathon training.
I faked it, I made it. And you can too. 🙂
