In this post, I share tips on how to overcome excuses to finish writing a book. One of the biggest obstacles most authors face is simply getting the first draft done. In this post, I share an excuse I used this week.
This weekend last year I was training hard for the Pike’s Peak ascent. Leading up to the Ascent, I did the Black Canyon Ascent this very weekend last year, six miles up hill all the way. I’m not a very good athlete so it was very intimidating to me, but I finished it and it gave me so much confidence for the next step of my training for the Ascent. Since the Ascent where I met my BIG goal, I have not been running much. I’ve been walking, hiking, and trying to stay active, but I have not been running like I was last year. This weekend my husband decided to run a race in Eagle, Colorado. We were checking out the trail ahead of time and we did around a mile hike up and a mile back. Oh my goodness, I realized how out of shape I am because I have not been continuing that training.
