FITNESS RUNNING

I run so I doubt

Even if I give the impression to have confidence in me through my photos, my articles, my positions on Instragram, I sometimes go through periods of doubt. Like everyone.

“I do not train enough”, “My lifestyle is not perfect”, “I will not be able to finish this race” …

I became particularly aware of this way of thinking running Odysséa last Sunday: I crossed the starting line for a 10km saying “Will I join the line to arrive?

Why this question ?! I run on average 40 km per week, I have several semi-marathons to my credit, of course I can run 10 kiosks!

I run to do good body and head and yet I have doubts, questions, brakes, and fears …

Running, long outings sometimes put me in a “modified state of consciousness”, a kind of self hypnosis conducive to reflection … I began to question these doubts …

I think it comes from the comparison to others … We are flooded, through social networks, images of high-performance girls, sculpted to perfection (steel abs, bouncing glutes), which make hours of sport, marathons, Ironmans, … These fitgirls, certe more muscular but barely thicker than the ladies of fashion magazines, live fitness, spend hours every day at the gym, to lift weights, to chain circuits training … Sport is their job. The body is their “working tool”.

Social networks motivate us, help us to find energy but sometimes can also generate some complexes …

We compare (yes, we do it all!). And then we set unachievable goals.

For example, I have already registered twice for a marathon … I have not done any, I have systematically injured during the preparation phase, extremely intense .. Too intense certainly for someone like me, sports since little! I’m trying to take a step back. I tell myself that you have to know how to go at your own pace, respect your body and its limits … The marathon will be for later …

The trend is for “healthy lifestyle” and everyone starts running. Why not…

All running fans? Ok. A dictatorship of performance? There, I say no !!

I write this little note spontaneously, asking the words as they come to invite us (me the first one!) To take a step back from the “fitspo” trend, to relativize, to admit the differences between each.

Put an end to the doubts engendered by the race to the performance to give place to the pleasure of running for oneself, to eat healthy for one’s well-being, to take care of one’s body and one’s health …

Small strides to better meditate and not to doubt … 😉
