Smilinggg 366 - Confidence building

✌️ is for two marathons

I’m calling this week a “Confidence Building” week. More for the mind than the body at this stage.

Following Mondays marathon, that night I had to tell my mind I wasn’t going to do next year’s challenge to allow myself to fall back to sleep at around 3am 😂 Woke up and informed my girlfriend the same thing. I got up out of bed, drank some water, had a coffee and laced up my trainers and out I went and covered a half marathon… 🫡

This morning I was treated to a stunning soul enriching sunrise as I plodded to the second marathon in four days. At a much easier pace, I’ve finished feeling fresh, a tad more confident and ready for 9-hours at work 💀

Will I ever truly feel mentally ready for this challenge? Not a chance. But I have faith that the way to overcome the obstacle is to go head on with the obstacle. Once I make the announcement (any day now 🫨) and it actually begins, I grow as a result of the pursuit and the rough seas will gradually ease and I’ll manage to find acceptance and an element of peace in the process… that’s what I’m hoping for anyway 🫠🫣

Ultimately, it’s all fun and games!

Steps 👣 + Smiles 🤗

Keep #Smilinggg 💛
