I don’t know what it is. Maybe its the weird, doom and gloom weather we’re having. Maybe just because its winter and its dark like, all the time, but lately my motivation for running has been nil.
Tuesday night I had to talk myself into going to the gym. I went to yoga and then had to drag myself to the treadmill for a three mile run. I normally love yoga, but for some reason I just couldn’t get into it. I just didn’t want to be there–I’d rather have been on my couch! But, at least I made it to the gym?
Yesterday I had 5 miles on the training plan but couldn’t face the gym again. I forced myself to run outside, in the gloomy, rainy weather. My legs were sore from yoga the night before and I felt so sluggish. I made it 4.5 miles. I was going to stop at 3.5 but figured, Hey, I’m already wet and out here, might as well run another loop. You’d think the 56 degree weather would make up for it–but it was still pretty bad out there.
Please, motivation, come back! Please tell me I’m not the only one struggling! This is not a good way to start off marathon training.
