Oh, motivation. Where have you gone?

I've kind of lost some running motivation. I'm still doing my weekly runs (intervals and tempo), but have skipped out on long runs the past two Sundays. I'm not really sure why.

Work is a nightmare lately. That could be it. I ran one half marathon, and I know I can run another one. That could be it. This time of year brings lots of other things to do, and I put running at the bottom of the list. That could be it. But, I don't know if any one of those reasons really is it. I just don't know.

But, I'm working on getting my motivation back. It helped getting this in the mail today.

My new RoadID! Note: I just threw it on my shoe. I tend to act before reading instructions so it might not be on correctly. But, I will read the instructions eventually. I was just too excited tonight.
I won my rockin' RoadID from Happy Healthy Runner (thanks again)!

I'll be sporting this when I run from now on ... which is hopefully more often than it has been.


  1. I think it's just the time of the year - everyone is stressed because it's the holidays and year end and all that good stuff, and exercise is usually the first thing to go. i always tell myself to just get out there for 10 minutes and if i'm still not feeling it after 10 minutes to just shelf it for the day and try again the next day. more often than not i end up getting in a good workout, but some days it really is just not happening and i don't stress about it... you shouldn't either :)

  2. @Happy Healthy Runner You always have such good advice! Our running group was so small tonight because everyone is feeling the same way. But, I went!
