Marathon Training. Just Keep Moving

Last Update: February 12, 2020

Hello everyone,

Thank you for stopping by to read my post!

It is natural to hope and long for success quickly. This is normal. Oft times people start this and take off in a sprint, quickly petering out and either quitting, or forgetting about their dream and the fabulous resource available to achieve them.

I was reminded this weekend about slowing down and taking it easy. Easy as in not rushing, move with intent, and purpose when I slammed my finger in the door on my spouse's truck.

Yep, boy howdy! I slowed down!

You see, I was in a hurry. I was frustrated, and I was trying to get to my job for my shift.

Where did I end up? In the Urgent Care receiving 10 stitches in my right ring finger! Needless to say... I did not get to go to work. I also had plenty of time over the past three days to remind myself that I need to slow down, breathe, forgive myself for my slow pace, AND that starting a business, even living life is a marathon!

I know better! I've run three marathons, and am training for a fourth.

On Saturday, I ended up in a hurry to nowhere! Just like I say to that driver who darts around me and ends up at the stop light right in front of me; "Yep, thought so, you were in a hurry to nowhere".

I hope that you've enjoyed this short post, that you remember building a strong business IS a marathon.

If I can finish three, you CAN finish this. Slow and steady wins the race.

Don't quit! Simply slowdown and keep moving forward! YOU ARE a winner!

To YOUR Happy, Healthy, and Wealthy ~

Kathy

One saying comes to mind, More haste, less speed.
However, hope your finger is soon mended and good luck with the marathon when it comes.

I have not heard that one!

It's a mid fourteenth century proverb, regularly used where I live. It just means the faster you try to do things the more likely you are to err and consequently slows you down.

Thank you! I run for charity, and once I'm in the groove I feel great. Getting started is much more difficult. This run if for St. Jude's. I have a lot to accomplish by April! 😅😅😊

Kathy, it's important for people to realize that WA is a marathon, not a sprint! Just my two cents as I keep turtling along! 🐢🐢🐢🐢

I'm turtling as well my friend. Keep going. That's what I have to tell myself during training and the race... keep going, one foot in front of the other, you WILL make it! Keep going my friend!
