Did I lose my motivation to run already? I did not run Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday... oops. The first two days were a breather as I allowed my legs to get back to normal. Wednesday I basically didn't feel like running when it was 93. This morning I got up and decided to run before work. Ouch! I have already learned that taking 3 days off is not a good thing... but I felt like I had no motivation to run either. I don't know if it was because my 5k run is done or because I tried to run with out music, or because I felt sorry for my dog and decided to take him along (still a pain to run with- and took a poop within the first 2 minutes of running) or maybe my legs and body really did hurt and I just wasn't feeling it. ??? I don't know what my problem was but I didn't even run a mile- maybe the combination of my run/walk equaled mile. Sad.
So I have to fix this little problem. I think the stretching and just getting back to running today will help my legs and body feel better for my next run. I will not bring the dog with me, sorry Lukah. I'll have to create some other moments to be "alone with my thoughts"... I'll leave that for when I swim or bike. But running? Music is a MUST! Plus I think I will sign up for another 5k run for my motivation. I found one in October in Portland, "Run Like Hell." It sounds like a fun run with it's Halloween theme.
There. Problems solved. Oh- and I know of some big sales going on this weekend for bike stuff. Maybe I'll find a pair of riding shorts and get on that bike of mine.
