Motivation

on

I think I might have a post titled this every month. Does that say something about me? There was this time, not so long ago, that I used to get up and run at 445 in the morning. I’d have to say, I was highly motivated when I did that. Today, I’m pretty sure there’s not anything short of a vacation that would get me out of bed at 445.

At Thanksgiving, we went to Colorado to spend it with Andy’s family. I had this brilliant idea that all my brothers and sisters in law should come down to Oklahoma and run the Memorial Half Marathon with Andy and I at the beginning of May. I had visions of us all at the starting line, wearing our matching tshirts, ipods in, ready to make a memory. So I pumped them all up, told them I’d send them the training plan, and promised a good time. Well, 2 of the sisters in law have since gotten pregnant, so their out. But Andy’s brothers are in. Now here we are, on the other side of 2 weeks with snow on the ground, and my motivation to get on the treadmill at work is nonexistent. Week 1 of my training plan went well. Week 2 which included snowstorm #1, ended with me completing one day of a brutal mental battle on the treadmill. And now we’re at week 3. Its looking a lot like week 2.

I’m a girl who doesn’t like to miss a party. Especially one that I’ve planned. It looks as though I’ve got a motivation problem. Now. What to do to fix it.

But I’m the one who had this bright idea. It somehow seems cruel that I’m not on board.

    So been there! My workouts are horrible right now, and I blame it on the lack of good weather. Let me know if you find a motivation fixer. I haven't even signed up for my first race this year, which is supposed to be in 3 weeks!
