I think I can, I think I can

Normally when I am exercising I am very obsessed with looking the clock, if it is a class I am always looking at the time. If I am running, I am always checking how much time has elapsed. Many times as the time ticks away and I get tired my mind starts the old game of quitter. My head says, damn I am tired, I can not wait for this to end, this sucks, ughhh please end, I can't do this anymore....how much more time, i just want to stop, when will it end. You get my drift.

Lately I have actually tried to have a different attitude. Instead of giving in to being tired and thinking I can't do it, I have decided to say, I will do this, I can do this, push harder, not much longer, you can do it, don't give up, kick ass...I think I can , I think I can. It works. It empowers me. 


  1. I have to stop myself from doing that all the time! I'm usually ok when I'm cross training on ellipticals and such but when I run I'm CONSTANTLY checking time and clocks!
    I do, like you, have to tell myself 'you can do this' etc.
    It's mind over matter!

  2. I need to adjust my attitude as well. I'm always watching the clock and thinking of all the other things that I need to do.


what are you triing
