How to get the best out of yourself.

So you want to improve your fitness. I’ve heard it all before. You want to want to exercise. You want to want to get out there and go for a run. Or you want to want to get that gym session done.

You wish you got that feeling that all of those other fit people must get when they are out there running enjoying themselves, smiling, barely huffing and puffing. You wish you felt like that when you went out for a run. Running must be so easy for all of those people

For them it all must be so easy.

Am I right?

Well guess what. I am here to tell you that it is not. I’m hear to tell you that all of that is a load of crap!

I am a personal trainer. I have completed a number of fun runs, a half marathon and I am training now for my second. By the end of this year I will have completed my first full marathon. I am by no means a professional runner but I do compete in my fair share of endurance events these days and I think I am getting close to getting the best out of myself and learning what works best for me and my body. If anyone out there should have the right to feel like this when they are out there training, running, exercising it should be me right? It should be someone like me who is around exercise, day in, day out all of my life I should love all of this stuff then, right?

Well guess what…

    I concur Luke!!!! I’ll admit that I hate exercise….but the rush, the endorphins afterwards…makes you feel like you can concor the world!!

    Just this weekend I sent a link out to some of my mates, to get together & partake in some group fitness….what did I get back?? Nothing but excuses!

      When you know you don’t need anyone else to rely on you will be able to achieve anything you want.

      Just get out there and get it done!

    So after an injury just after writing this post I’m back on track. Half marathon completed over the weekend in preparation for my goal of the October 14th Melbourne Marathon. Time for the Sandy Point Half Marathon was a cruising 1:53 Definitely not my quickest time possible but its more about getting the k’s in at this point. What’s your next goal?
