It's all in the attitude.

I forget that. I know it, well. I know that how I view things affects how I deal with them. I know that I have no control over the universe at large. I can only control how I react to things and how I view said universe. Yet still, I forget it.

I started back to working out this week and was unable to figure out why my heart wasn't in it. It just occurred to me on the way home, I'm not viewing working out in the proper light.

I was looking at it as something "I have" to do. Something that gets me out of bed way too early and I have to endure. That's not true.

I love that I can train. I love that I am healthy and physically fit. I love that I live in a place where I can train almost year round. I love watching my body change and improve. I love it.

Okay, I don't like getting up super early but you know what, it hasn't killed me yet.

Also, I have to focus on something. So I'm going to start focusing on the sprint next month.

Starting tomorrow I'm going to have a more positive attitude towards training. I get to train everyday. How lucky am I????

No one gets all excited about waking up early. Not even me and I am a morning person.

That being said, the switch from "have to" to "want to" is a key feature in training. Keep it up!

Sounds like you have a plan! All the best.
