motivation

Tonight I seriously lack the motivation to run. I've been running 3 miles 6 days a week (unless hugely interrupted like last week). I know it's not a lot compared to most runners, but I feel it's a good, strong, driven goal for me.

When I am finished, it's always worth the effort, but getting myself on the treadmill is the biggest hurtle. All I want to do right now is curl up and read or maybe even get caught up on "The Hills" I have DVR'd... anything but run. Why do I feel like this? I love running, but my motivation tonight is super zapped.

I'm pretty much posting this so you can all know and hold me accountable to FINISH my run. Now I have to run because I would hate to have to come back and tell you all that I sat around and didn't run. Yes, it's a good thing to share my lack of energy, in hopes of gaining some encouragement and the little "push" I need to keep up my healthy habit.

Thanks for the vent, I'm off to pound the pavement (well, really treadmill belt).

Music musing is by Brett Dennen (yes, AGAIN). This song is called "When You Feel It," which tonight I don't "feel the desire to run" but this ditty might help that. :o)

A fun video.... to get me hyped about the treadmill....

I can say well maybe you should listen to your tired body telling you to take a chill pill for the night cause 18 miles a week is awesome and you deserve a break hello!

or...

You should sign up to run the Austin Marathon in February. Wade runs the 1/2 every year and says it's the best course around. I don't run with him, but I do come to cheer him on. We should get together then!!!
