You Are Responsible

If you want to run's your responsibility to make the choices to get there (I recommend more fast paced runs).  If you want to run's your responsibility to get there too (I suggest more long runs).  If you want to lose weight, then do it--it's your responsibility (I might advise you to eat less and run a slow fat-burning pace).  The bottom line is that you are responsible for your actions and you shouldn't make excuses or blame others.  True for running, true for life.  Don't blame the weather.  Don't blame your busy life. Don't blame the neighbors, friends, spouse, kids, dog, or boss. Take responsibility and be honest with yourself.  Note to self: don't use the hot and humid weather as an excuse to skip a workout--get out and run!  Whatever happens, you are responsible. You can take credit for your successes...and also your failures. No pointing fingers at others.

Here's a great post from one of my favorite bloggers (No Meat Athlete) on this very topic.  Re-read it last night and it still rings true. It's titled:

"The Belief That Will Take Your Training to the Next Level"

Don't you want to take your training to the next level?  It's a short post...go ahead and read it.
