strong inside out
At the Gym the other day I had a great post idea, now I just remember I was motivating myself to finish the three miles I had started to run.
When I have a sluggish, lazy day at the Gym, I always remember my first serious run back in school when I was 11 years old. I will never forget the feeling when I realized we were not turning around that we were going to run for as long as my coach decided to. I remember I felt like crying, but then I was encouraged to take it as slow as I needed to and to try finding the squirrels along the path.
When I struggle to finish my longer runs, I search through my memories again. I start remembering my first wrestling match outside of Moldova, it took place in Lvov, Ukraine. I vividly remember how I lost my first match and how I won the second one. I took second place, although I felt I didn’t perform enough. I lacked encouragement and self confidence.
Afterwards, I start thinking about my first biggest competition- the European Championship which took place in Turkey. This one makes me mad because I didn’t have a plan nor a vision before stepping on the wrestling mat. I ended up winning the first match losing the second one, qualifying in the 6th place.
That’s how I find my strength, I like searching my memory database to encourage and improve myself...
To be finished later.
