So I'm in a 6 week "Women's Intro to Running" community education class. I really needed to run this moring, and it was pouring rain. The rain got me a bit worked up, but I remembered what my instructor taught us last week--
"But it doesn't matter!"
If you feel tired and don't want to run, just say to yourself "but it doesn't matter!" If it's cold outside, "but it doesn't matter!" If you go running with you child and you know he or she will run way faster than you "It doesn't matter!"
I had to use it this morning. And I was victorious! It was raining, and I still went out. I ran/walked 2 miles--hooray for me!
