    What a great post! I really find that my stubborness (and pride) are big factors in endurance races πŸ™‚

    Like a dummy, I HAD to click that second determination poster. Second bad move of the day after watching CSI while eating lunch.

    I’m really in a “I hate exercise” mood but I still really want to lose the weight so I’m doing 30 mins on the Precor. No. Matter. What.

    30 mins goes by all the time but the only way it’s going to affect my weight is if I’m moving for 30 mins, so I try to distract my mind while I move and just keep on keeping on. I know it’ll get easier and better.

    YAY! You answered my question! Such a great post…I love it. I’m stubborn too. When I ran my 10K race I was super tired at the end and wanted nothing more than to walk, but I kept jogging (at probably a 4.2 mph pace or something) just because I refused to walk. I hope that’s in my favor! πŸ™‚

      In my book jogging is better than walking or stopping!
