A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Second half motivation? Where you at?

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Mom and me at Disney's Grand Floridian (lately, I choose sitting on tiny furniture over running) 

Something strange is going on with me and running this week. Saturday was my first run after the half (six days later). It felt okay -- not great, but okay. I was going to run Sunday, but there were car troubles to attend to, and that was far more fun and entertaining than going for a run (I'm not being facetious, I actually mean that!). Yesterday, I taught Jazzercise in the morning and evening. 

So, today, I was going to run four miles. But then, we had book club after school. And then by the time I got home, it was 5:45. And then I was tired. So instead, I took a perfectly beautiful day and didn't run and instead ate dinner. And candy. 

I seem to be having a hard time getting back into the habit of running. Toward the end of my training, I was trying to run four times a week, but I know I'm going to need to scale back to three runs for the time being. I'm hoping a run tomorrow and a few good runs over the weekend will help me get back on track. I don't seem to miss running right now, which worries me for my motivation for this second half. We'll see, though. 

I think eight hours of sleep will help. I've been lacking on sleep hours lately... but I kind of don't mind. :)

  1. You've just done a tremendous amount of work & your body could use a little rest :) There is a book "Run Less, Run Faster" and they only have you run 3 days a week which is supposed to help with overuse/injury. Enjoy your "little break" and then get back to work...hahaha
