Picture this scenario. You start running and you’re a little hesitant about telling people. But you finally gather the courage to tell someone at work that you’re doing a 5K, and you’ll be doing run-walk intervals. And their response is, “Oh, well you’re really more of a walker than a runner, aren’t you?”
I’m going to break this to you gently: today’s episode is not about literal poop bags. But it is about dealing with shitty comments, which I’m sure is a way more interesting topic anyway. Hearing comments like this can end up with us experiencing some pretty negative feelings. And if this happens to you, or you’re scared that it might, I want you to listen closely to this episode.
Tune in this week to discover the secret to leaving other people’s opinions by the side of the road like the bags of poop that they are. I’m sharing why other people’s opinions about your running are not what makes you upset, and what you can do to help your brain sort the gold from the crap when it comes to what other people have to say about you.
I know so many of us struggle to stay consistent when it comes to our exercise routines. So, on April 11th I’m doing a half-day workshop on how to stay consistent with exercise. I’m teaching you why this is so difficult and what you can do to change it, all for just $39. And if you’re busy that day, don’t worry because I will be providing the replay via email later that night. Click here to join and I will see you there!
