I just ran 10 miles. Not only was it the first time I’ve run that far, but I did it without stopping. A week ago I was still “getting back into running,” and trying to running 5K without stopping. Then four days ago, I went for a run. I felt great and decided not to turn back at 2.5K (which is my normal half way). By the time I was done, I had run 6.2 miles. A new record.
Yesterday, I went out for a lunchtime run and ran 5 miles. I just wanted to see if the 6.2 was a fluke. Tonight I felt stressed, so I went for a run with no real plan on the distance. By the time I was close to home I was at 7.4, so I decided to run some neighborhoods and go for 10. I did it.
Four days ago, I would have said there’s no way in the world I could run 10 miles in four days, let alone 6.2 that day. If you had asked me this morning if I could run 10 miles tonight, after having run 5 yesterday, I would have said, “No way.” But I did.
What can you do in four days, or even today, that you think is impossible right now? Do I think you can go run 10 miles tomorrow, or build something amazing, or close that deal, or fill your daughter with self-esteem? How should I know? But that doesn’t mean you can’t. Just go out and do it.
