“Fear is gradually replaced by excitement and a simple desire to see what you can do on the day.”
This is happening to me. I used to be scared of track workouts. Now I love them. I used to dread and procrastinate and do my best to postpone pace runs, now I’m excited to see what I can do once I’m out there! And hill repeats, I’m even getting around to liking them (gasp!) It’s invigorating. It’s renewing. It’s just another reason why I get up at insane hours to run :).
