A few days ago, before yesterday's race, I saw this quote on Lorna Jane Australia's instagram feed. Oddly enough, it kept coming back to me during the run yesterday. Because I started quite close to the front, I was with very fast people and I challenged myself to keep up with them. I am NOT used to seeing "1:40" and "1:50" pacers anywhere near me...ever!! Naturally I didn't keep up that pace for the whole race (!) but I pushed and pushed and pushed to make yesterday's run just that little bit better than last week's. This little phrase became my mantra for the whole race!
If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.
If you want to change, make sure you're doing something that's going to get you out of the comfort zone :)
More on the race later! Hope you have a happy Monday! x
