Sometimes it can be a challenge to motivate yourself to get out and run. It’s still cold out right now (short lived winter vortex happening) and this is one thing keeping me from running outdoors. Which, if you think about it is kinda funny because I love running in the winter…with snow/ice on the ground.
Sometimes your exhausted from your day, you are feeling lazy or you don’t have anyone to go with. And sometimes you find motivation in an unknown way!
Yesterday I worked a 12 hour day. This is not normal for my normal 9-5 day but I had to travel 2 hours to a workshop and back plus I had an evening meeting. Because of that it meant that I wouldn’t get home until 8 pm. I was exhausted.
My husband had planned to get on his bike (indoor trainer) after he got the girls to bed. When I arrived at home (7:50 pm), I was exhausted and was still thinking I’d jump on the treadmill but wasn’t 100% sold on the idea.
As Saï was getting his bike gear on, I decided to put my running gear on and head down to the basement as well. I really wanted to run but I was so exhausted from my day that sitting on the couch and watching some TV sounded delightful!
Instead, I jumped on the treadmill after being motivated by my husband. I’m not sure if he knew that he was motivating ME to run while HE biked….but he did. Thanks love.
Another 5 k done in my half marathon training.
What has motivated you lately?
Do you workout with your significant other?
Happy Hump Day!
