Knock Knock Knock....Motivation??? Where Are You????

This sucks.  No other way to put it.  I have never been LESS motivated to run with the exception of pregnancy and post-partum.  I have no idea why!

I don't know.  Every time I do run, I feel great.  I feel like a moron for not doing it every day.  Then the next day comes and the thought of running sounds as appealing as a stick in the eye.

It's lame.  I feel good.  I don't hurt at all anywhere (which I know plenty of runners on Injured Reserve that would right now would die to be able to run 1mi)  The kids are willing to watch a movie for a half hour so I can jump on the mill-so time is no excuse.  Truly I have nothing.  The hubby even asks if I am going to run.  It's so weird.

I had my plan of action all written out through AMR and I did pretty good until this Tuesday.  Then it all fell apart.  Aside from one day of yoga, I have done nothing!!

I did buy new running shoes today which is always a treat.  I'm thinking that may help?

I also have no goals right now.  My next race isn't until November.  It is a half and honestly I just don't feel that excited about it.  I know the weather will be horrible-it always is-and frankly that is not a problem for me.  I spent all last winter during an La Nina` training for my spring half.  As much as I hate the WA weather, I have no problem getting out in the rain and cold and running.  How strange is that??

UGH!!  This is nuts!

So here are my thoughts-
I start prepping to run the Seattle Marathon like a full.  Meaning I start to ramp my miles back up and start training on July 23.
OR I start streaking and see how long I can get.  Minimum of 1mi /day every single day.  No excuses.

If you are down in a rut-how do you get back your fitness MoJo??? Anyone-Anyone??

  1. I would go for the 1mi/d streak before committing to the full & see if that works. You can always switch to the full at the Expo if you're feeling naughty!
