Ever since after the Baltimore Half Marathon I haven't been as motivated to run. I thought it was just because my big race was over and I had off time before I needed to start training for my next big race.
I was so excited to start training for my upcoming half marathon but then I would hardly run. The less I ran the more frustrated I was becoming. It felt like a never ending cycle and I started to feel trapped.
As the race is starting to creep up on me I am realizing that I need to really commit to my training. I love Christine's idea of using a dry erase calendar to keep track of workouts.
At least for now I am also going to do all of my runs at whatever paces feel comfortable. I still want to do tempo and interval runs but I am not going to stress over exactly how fast they are.
I want to get back to running for fun and to relieve stress. Hopefully I will have some great posts throughout the next week about all of the awesome workouts I have been doing.
