This weekend I spent my time doing anything but running. Part of it had to do with the fact that all my housemates are gone and I have the place to myself for the next week. The other part was sheer laziness. Well, only on the exercise front. I’ve been pretty productive otherwise. Besides an obligatory trip to the library, I cleaned the house, baked cupcakes, prepared my lunches for the next three days and went for a five mile walk. And since the sitting room hogs aren’t in house, I actually got to watch a couple of movies on our gigantic tv set. By the way, Gosford Park is excellent.
But no running. I’ve been pretty lacking in the motivation department when it comes to running lately. My next race is about seven weeks away which feels like ages and it’s only 7K. Having said that, it’s the one year anniversary of the first race I ever ran in and I definitely want my time to be good. So I need some encouragement to stop slacking and get back to training.
So I turned to Razz. Yeah, surprised me too. Razz has been complaining again of a lack of motivation. So we’re teaming up with X-Country2 to keep ourselves accountable. Razz and I just want to run four days a week, though I have a caveat of wanting to get in at least 17 miles each week. X-Country2, who’s training for the Lincoln marathon, wants to maintain her focus. So, for the next five weeks, the three of us are going to mock each other into pursuing our respective goals. There was talk of having an additional incentive, something like a prize for the ultimate non-procrastinator, but we were all stumped as to what that should be. If you all are more imaginative, feel free to leave suggestions in the comments.
Okay, that’s it for me today. Catch up with you guys later.
