I’ve been struggling with motivation — in relation to my fitness — for some time now.
But now something seems to have clicked. Today was my 5th day in a row of working out. Most of those have been days with Camp Gladiator. And while I love camp and think it’s doing great things for my overall fitness, the real test will be tomorrow morning.
I am scheduled to do a run. On my own. So far I have done well with my group runs with Raleigh Galloway, but I always find some excuse for not going on my weekday runs. While I can get away without doing runs during the week now because we are early in the season and my “long” runs aren’t very long. But it won’t stay that way. As our weekend runs get longer, I will put myself at greater and greater risk of injury if I am only running once per week.
So it’s time for me to do this. I’m putting it out into the universe to help hold me accountable. Tomorrow I will run. I will do at least a mile… more likely 2 or 3. And I will go even if I don’t want to, even if it’s raining, even if I’m tired.
I won’t think. I’ll just go.
EDIT: I thought I posted this last night but apparently I didn’t. The good news is I still got my butt out the door for a 2 mile run this morning 🙂
