I love being exhausted, feeling pain... pain to the point that you are about to break, but pushing through it … I love when you finish a run with your heart beating extremely fast, your body incredibly exhausted, and feeling as though you gave EVERYTHING you are capable of.
At this point, you have nothing left in the ‘tank’.
I LOVE that feeling. It makes me feel accomplished and confident and fulfilled!
I am still learning that EVERY work out can not be like this. You can not go to complete exhaustion during every solitary run…bike…swim. It is mentally challenging and frustrating for me. I get so antsy thinking I should have tested the limits, pushed harder, FASTER, went longer, and pressed on a few more miles. Focusing on making sure I am not back on the injured train is hard!
