Well, I officially need to say that motivation is currently at a low point. I am having to convince myself that running is fun. Of course, runs like yesterday’s six miler don’t help….
For whatever reason, those six miles yesterday seemed every bit as difficult as any run twice the distance. I was toying with the idea of tacking an extra couple miles on to make the distance respectable, but I soon jettisoned that idea about 2 miles in. I might still be suffering from some of the after effects of my bronchitis since I did have to stop for a couple of mini coughing fits, but more alarming was the fact that at no point during my run (except when I got back to the car) was any of it “fun”. Sigh.
I’ll be off for a little tempo run this afternoon – 30 minutes or so. I’m hoping that the nice weather can adjust my attitude…..
