I hear this so often, whether it’s they don’t want to go out running because what people may think, same with the gym and running events. Whether this is because of being body conscious or they feel too slow at running.
It’s sad to think that some people have not done their goals just because they’re worried about what people might think.
I know it’s not as easy as just ignoring the anxiety, those people that are going to judge, are going to regardless, Whatever it’s about, and it’s more a problem with them not you, where as most people will give you credit for doing what you are doing.
Get yourself out there and do your best, ignore them and achieve your goals.
