Her delivery was a bit preachy for my tastes (in spite of the fact that I am a christian) but once you got past that she had really good points.The thing I took away from tonight was about the Self-fulfilling prophecy. If I set low expectations of myself then I am likely to achieve them, but no further.
I have been setting goals here lately. Running related goals. Here they are: March St Paddys Day 5K, April Remember the 10 5K, May Full Moon 5K, October Tulsa Zoo 10K, and November Tulsa Run 15K.
Two things to note.
- First of all the gap in races. If you haven't been to OK in the summer let me tell you it gets DAMN HOT. I overheat easily so I do not yet know how I am going to fare in the summer.
- Secondly I think I have more than shocked my husband by continuing to train for the 5K. He is more than a little concerned that with me setting such ambitious goals for my self I will not be able to maintain this level of enthusiasm. Then my intrest may fizzle
