I want to skip a training session

15 Dec

What is wrong with me! I got myself all setup for the Frederick Half Marathon…training plan, a 10k a month or so before, got a treadmill to get me through the winter…I’m 4 days in and already I’m justifying skipping my run tonight. NOT OKAY. My mom needs help wrapping presents and we always do game night with my family on Thursday’s so I figure no big deal I’ll just run tomorrow. Isn’t that how it always happens…tomorrow, until my next training day comes up and I have ended up skipping this one entirely. I knew I should have gotten my lazy butt out of bed and ran this morning…

So how do you keep up your motivation?

    There are tons of reasons and excuses to keep you from running. Key is to remember why you're running.I've also found that once I get going, I'm grateful I did choose to run instead of skipping out. And I always love how I feel after a run. A bad run is always better than _________ (fill in the blank).

    Love this Jay, I will always come back to this post when I'm feeling sluggish to get out the door.
