Don't stop believing

I'm finding the desire for training difficult this week. The days I want to run, I find a thunderstorm pushing me inside. The days that are beautiful running weather... well, the swimming pool looks so inviting. So last night, I swam. I promised myself it would be okay if I crosstrained instead, but it is always bad news for me to stray away from my schedule.

I think I'm still scared I don't have what it takes, and am therefore trying to sabotage myself. Why is it that we are so good at believing in others, but find it so difficult to believe in ourselves?
