Last week, I decided to take my daily walks up a notch. |
It was too easy, and I wanted a challenge. So I started jogging.
I started off with a light HIIT-like routine where I jog for 30 seconds, walk for 30 seconds, and repeat.
And slowly, I increased it to 60 seconds.
Then, I decided to test myself to see how long I can jog for without stopping. Turns out, quite a while. As long as I jog at a certain pace and remember to keep breathing, I’m good.
At that point, running out of breath isn’t really the issue, it’s a matter of how long I can jog for until my leg muscles give out. If I were to guess, that’s probably part of the reason why marathon runners are able to run for so long.
The running trail I usually go to is about 2.4 miles, so I’m going to make a personal goal to be able to run the entire trail without stopping. And since the trail is by a bay, there’s that aesthetic bonus.
However, there’s still the mental endurance aspect I need to work on. Sometimes impatience sets in when I look at the long path ahead of me and it makes me want to run faster to get it over with. But, at the same time, if I do that, I know I’m going to run out of breath and ruin my run.
And then I had a thought.
You know, this is no different than email marketing.
It can be discouraging when you send out emails and see zero sales coming in. But the important thing is to keep at it and focus on building that relationship.
After all, it really is a long-term game.
I heard stories of people not buying until months, even years after they signed up to a person’s email list.
But it all starts with writing those relationship-building, engaging sales emails, which you can learn how to do using the information in How to Become an Email Titan.
