@mrs_pudding_pop:  Wow 4.5 miles is great! I agree the weather has me down too! I switched to working out after work and now my Darling Husband comes with me. We are only there an hour, but it’s much nicer to sleep in πŸ™‚

“Running is a big question mark that’s there each and every day. It asks you, ‘Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'”
– Peter Maher, Canadian marathon runner

This one is probably my favorite running quote:

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.”

YOU CAN DO IT!  4.5 miles this morning is awesome!!

What about working out during lunch?  I do about 30 minutes a day during my lunch hour, then jump in for a quick rinse off in the shower and then drive back to work.  It makes you work really hard those 30 minutes since that’s all you have (I’d say my 30 min. work outs are better than when I was doing an hour, lazily).  Plus, you go back feeling refreshed for the afternoon.

I have no advice, but I’m right there with ya, lady!  I ran a marathon in January and I have bene in a SLUMP ever since.  No motivation it seems.  Couple that with a knee injury post marathon that still flares up and just getting off a 15 day cold and my 17.75k race (~11 miles) on Saturday is going to be a DISASTER.

I’m blaming the slump and lack of motivation on the winter weather.  So hopefully when it warms up I won’t have to be making deals with myself to get out there and do something I love?
