These days, I have been busy with my shoe line exhibition in Jakarta Fair. Since it's my office holiday, I take turn to look after the booth with my sis. All this time, she was the one handling it when I was working.
Yesterday was one of the days where I came and stand by there. It was raining and cold and not a lot of visitors and it made me realize (again) how I dislike just sitting there and I felt like I am not in my maximum potential. I feel very restless and tired and not getting the best.
I came home very tired and decided to take a day off today. Bf suggested me to exercise and I was like, "but I am so tired"
He did not force me though.
However when I woke up this morning and looked at my gym clothes, I suddenly miss running. I decided that I wanna hit the gym today and run 10k at least!
It ain't easy!! I was feeling so sleepy and my friend asked if I just wanna go home? Another friend asked if I wanna join her hang out with another friend. I successfully said no and made it to the gym!
Still, it was not easy to hit 10k. When I was already 7k, I felt tired and thought of giving up.. but I have decided to hit 10k, so I continued.
When I hit 8k, that thought came back but I have decided to hit 10k, so I continued.
I remember in the morning, Andre messaged me talking about grit, and that same GRIT is what pushed me through.
When I hit 9k? Well, it's one more km, let's just finish it and so I did. Finish it. 10km today.
I felt so so so great afterwards. I know I will regret it if I stopped at 7k or 8k. Now that I did finish it, I felt very very good and it changed my mood drastically.
It reminds me again why I love running in the first place.
I dedicated this post to Andre. Thanks for reminding me to be gritty.
