Mental games: My body VS My brain

On the train ride home last night I decided to skip my planned workout.
In this weeks workout plan I scheduled NTC for Tuesday.
However, my body was tired from a combination of fighting a cold (my body is winning!) and getting back into the swing of things after STAYCATION 2012.

I decided black bean soup from Panera in a bread bowl while watching Pretty Little Liars(<--latest obsession) was better than sweating.

It wasn't until I realized I had eaten the bread bowl {I've never done that before} that I said to myself ::outloud:: "Get off your lazy booty and watch this show while working out."

Me, my PLL gals and the treadmill had an "okay" time together.
My knee still does not want to run{lazy knee} so I alternated running and wogging.
Definition of Wogging- Walk/Jogging, it's it.

In the end I did 2.3 miles in 32 minutes.
Not great, especially when that is my current 5k time.

 (how awesome is that blurry picture? Yea I hate my Otterbox)

Regardless of any pain/problems I felt better about myself. 
I worked out even though I didn't want too.
My body BEAT my brain.

It's crazy how easily we can talk ourselves out of working out, but talking ourselves into it is a constant battle.
Lets change that?

Today I will be picking up a knee brace and trying it out in hopes it does something for my current pain issue.
I miss running.
{Still cannot believe I say things like that}

  • Has your body ever beat your brain?
  • What do you do to pass the time on a "dreadmill"?
