Writing and mental strength

I am supposed to be writing. I am supposed to be writing every single day. And I have been terrible at keeping  up with it. That was one of the biggest goals that I set myself for 2017, and I have been all over failing at it. At least, writing anything of worth.
My notebook that I am using right now. I felt like it SHOULD be inspiring to get me writing.

I have been keeping up with the blog (as you can see, and even making changes to it with new layouts and getting my own domain!) which is obviously a good thing and is important to me. So yes, I have made blog progress for sure. And that is important as well, but it is not the same as "writing".

I wanted to write creatively, write for some lifetime revelation. Things about my life and what I should do with my career. Make some progress on ME and the things that I need.

But instead, here I am. Blogging. Thinking about the workout I have on my schedule. Thinking about all things that are unimportant overall in the scheme of things but that definitely weigh heavily.

So instead of continuing to reflect on that, let's take a look at something that I am working on.

Mental strength.

I know I have posted on that before, as it is something that I have been struggling with for quite some time. I definitely had SOME struggles with it in Boston. And it DOMINATED my last experience in Chicago. And it came up again last week when I was running on the 4th of July. Yes, it was incredibly HOT that day, but I didn't even finish. I stepped off the course all together instead of just slowing down. I finished my run. But I did not finish my race.

WTF? Right? I ran 9 miles but could not finish a 10K. This is definitely a mental strength issue. And I definitely have some work to do.
