When you want to give up, just remember why you started.

Nowadays, because Pandemic Covid-19, I rarely went to gym or going hash. Because it required many people and we really don’t know the situation and condition. So better be save.

Since May 2020, I started to running again with my dad. And we run about 8.79 – 8.99km.

You know, the first time running, I have this thinking, I won’t running again. Really, all body is hurting and mostly I walk. But then I just think, what’s the purpose for me to running again?

Then the 2nd time, I still want to give up. It even worst. Once I started, I want to go back home immediately.

After the 3rd time, I feel more ease. It feels very light to run.

Then the 4th time, Try to run 3km non stop, and fix my running method. Sometimes, I’m too lazy to lift my foot so it rubs the road. And it dangerous because I can fall.

5th time, try to do the right method, and have a steady breath. And try to run for 4km nonstop.

6th time, this time, as today, I started to use the right method and try to run 4km nonstop and walk 1km then run again 4km. And mostly did it.

This is my best score so far. And because I have stomachache while running so it delayed my time a little. Hopefully next week will be better.

Sometimes, when I’m running, I have 2 kind of thinking.

  1. To give up, and walk instead of running. The first side of my inner thought said, you are tired so just walk, why you should try to tiring yourself.
  2. To continue running, the other side of my inner thought said, you promise yourself that you will run 4km nonstop. So why you started if you give up later?

Even when I wake up in the morning when it’s time to running, I have this thought too, to looking for a reason to not run and sleep again. Haha..

Sometimes, in life we have to choose our own path. And we really don’t know how is the process, and what is the result. And once you started to walk the path you choose, there’s many obstacle in it which make you doubt your decision. And sometimes, you want to give up and change to the other path. But the other path you didn’t choose is gone already.

If you have this thought, just remember, why you started from the first time if you decided to give up before you make it?

So when you want to do something, just remember that we can’t going back to the past. And there’s no people who can not do something, but only there’s people who lazy. I’m sure everyone always start from the very beginning. And as a person, you start to speak and walk from baby, and sometimes you fall. But you didn’t give up. So why don’t learn from baby?
