This has been the fastest month of the year for me. Has September just flown by for you? I seriously can’t believe that tomorrow is October.
I’m trying hard to embrace fall but my Birkenstock are too comfortable, layering my clothing just seems to take way more time and I’m not loving how dark it is outside in the early morning and evenings now. I’ve yet to turn on my heat, blankets will do just fine for now.
Even though I’ve been given the okay to run again, I’ve done very little and feel like I almost have no interest in it! WTF, crazy, I know. First I’m training in the summer heat and loving it, then injured and cursing that I couldn’t run. And now, I’m just feeling blah about running…I need some kind of motivation people…help me out!
I did play three games of soccer last weekend which was fabulous. It was so great to be on the field. My lungs crying from all the sprinting, my legs happy when the ball was at the other end of the field and feeling every muscle in my body days after.
Oh….and I signed up for another race a few weeks back, ha ha ha! Seriously, I did it when I was still injured. I’m registered to run the 10k at Valley Harvest Marathon on Thanksgiving weekend (Canadian – Oct 9th). I paced the 10k last year and it was so much fun! However, I’m starting to think about moving down the 5k distance and taking it easy rather then push myself to do the 10k…I’m just not feeling it right now. Motivation, drive, interest – all at an extreme low. I’m also tired…so tired lately. Battling a head cold and lack of sleep are the main culprits.
The fun part is that the girls will be running the kids runs at Valley Harvest Marathon the day before my race. They LOVE this and can’t wait to run on the track again. And of course, Thanksgiving food with family …yum!! I did manage to get out for a run this week while I was away at a conference…that should be bonus points right there 😉
What’s your best motivation to go?
