If you ask me to run 10 miles in any direction, sure. I can do it.
Ask me to do burpees for 30 seconds and, well… I can do it, but I won’t like it.
My heart rate is just maxed, my shoulders and arms hurt, I’m probably sweating everywhere.
And I know this is why I need to do more working out stuff. Like I said, I can run comfortably for 10 miles. I can bang up some hills, even do a little speed here and there.
Push ups? Leg scissors? Squat jumps? Kill me now.
As Seth Godin recently wrote in “A note from 2030“:
“Twelve years from now, your future self is going to thank you for something you did today, for an asset you began to build, a habit you formed, a seed you planted.”
Dammit, he’s right.
I started running in 2016, and today in 2018 I am super thankful I started then! I really need to honor that note from 2030, and get doing more work out / cross training / weight lifting.
