Couldn't Run Today

I was dressed (with two sports bras - shout out to all my big boobie sisters), ready, and on the treadmill, but I couldn't muster up the energy to run. WTF? I was doing so well. I've run everyday except yesterday (my scheduled rest day). In the spirit of staying positive, I'm not going to beat myself up... just going to aim for a nice long run first thing tomorrow (love when hubbie is home in the mornings!). I'll even give myself credit for not just doing nothing - I ended up walking at a good pace with an 8% incline. At least I worked up a little sweat and burned calories.

So, let me ask you, what motivates you? (This can be about running, or life in general.)

P/S I posted some recipes (link above). Let me know if you try any. More to come...

  1. You know, sometimes I don't love running. But I always love the way I feel after a run, even if I'm sore and limping. So, if I don't want to run I tell myself I need to give it 20 minutes. If, after 20 minutes I'm still not feeling it, I can go do something else. But that rarely happens, because after 20 minutes I'm warmed up and feeling good and I keep running!

    Walking at a steep incline is actually a great cross-train, though, so I wouldn't classify it as a missed day at all!
