Bring back my enthusiasm! To be honest, I have lost the drive for this running project. A week worth of running, according to my prescribed beginner runner schedule, is dropped by day 4. Aside from running, I do spin and free weight exercises for variety; so I still exercise at least 5 days a week. However, this running thing… *phew* is not coming easy to me at all. The actual activity is not that difficult, once I get past the first 2 miles. My body is fully warmed up by then. My muscles and joints aren’t questioning why I have decided to put them through this. Instead of fighting me, they are now working in tandem with my brain and I can run on and on without a problem.
I still want to complete a half marathon; my question is, will I make it through this training schedule? I’ve missed 2 running days already. I had good reasons to… well, sort of good reasons. And today, I have 7 miles before me. As the day crawls on, I wonder if I will get the drive to start it. Its a particularly lazy Sunday for me. It’s so pretty outside but I’d rather look at it than be in it.
