Be grateful for what you have

I was training the other day on the Astroturf here, doing interval runs, focusing on my running form and trying to get my rubbish left leg to work properly.

I get immensely frustrated when doing this, but then halfway through the session, a chap was walking around the Astroturf, and after a few laps I had a chat with him, he’s coming back from a hernia problem, he can just about walk and this is all he can do for a number of weeks now, which made me suddenly feel more grateful that I’m able to even run.

With all my clients over the years they’ve gotten frustrated when they’ve been 10 seconds off there PB for example, and I was the same when I ran competitively , but sometimes you just got to be grateful that you’re able to do what you’re doing, because there is likely to be someone wishing they could do what you can.
