With each pounding step, my thigh swells. The pain shoots through me. All I can feel is the swelling. With each step the soreness fills me deeper.
Then I remember that this soreness, this swelling, this pain...means i am getting stronger. With each painful stride, my legs are being strengthen. My cardio is increasing. My speed is elevating. I breathe in, grateful for the pain.
Welcoming the swelling. Happy to be gaining strength and improvements with each step.
All the sudden...the pain subsides.
I am filled with the powerful thought of being stronger than yesterday.
My breathe eases and my happiness overtakes me. Focusing on the gain instead of the pain keeps me motivated to push even more. The end of the training session doesn't seem as far away. My success seems even closer.
I take another step.
Believer that everyone is special.
