Tired But Still Going – Day 137

Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 137

Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

I woke up earlier than usual today because I was finally going to run up Mount Tennant, a mountain in my area. Notice how I didn’t say “try”, because I was confident that I was going to succeed given how well I had prepared both physically and mentally. I drove to the mountain to save my energy, and then I set off for the peak. It was tough, and my legs were really burning at one point, but I managed to reach the summit in an hour and twenty minutes. I was reasonably elated at this achievement, but then came the reality of having to go back down. I was so tired at that point that I considered rolling myself down, but at least walking back was easier than going up.

 Even though I was exhausted, I felt really great for the rest of the day. I seemed to just have an air of accomplishment about me, so nothing was going to throw me off my stride. I was feeling so good that I almost wanted to tell my kids to do my chores for me, but I still needed to handle my responsibilities. It’s important to try and work hard to make up for a failure, but you should work even harder after a success.

I managed to squeeze in a solid workout after what was an incredibly exhausting day. Taking this morning’s run into account, I got in an intense full-body workout today, something that I wouldn’t have even dreamed of doing before. I love thinking back to when I could barely do a bit of lifting without getting crazy sore and comparing that to where I am now, besting even my younger self in feats of athleticism.

Quote of the Day

“To be prepared is half the victory.” – Miguel de Cervantes


I feel that today was very symbolic of the progress I’ve made on this journey. With how far I’ve come, I believe that I’ve literally reached the top of the mountain, but that doesn’t mean that I’m done by any stretch. I still have greater mountains to climb, and the best is yet to come.
