No desire to run. None at all. I stayed in bed later than I have in a year (9:30-ish) and then finally ate breakfast. I changed into my running clothes, even tossing on the calf sleeves and head band.
And then I went to sleep. No, seriously. I got completely dressed for my long run, and then crashed on the sofa.
When I woke up a couple of hours later, I was STILL not ready to go for a run. I rarely have completely lazy days like this, but it was amazing. I goofed off online, napped off and on, and then finally decided to do something semi productive by getting some grocery shopping done.
BUT - I refused to change out of my running clothes. I knew if I did, that would be it, and I wouldn't get around to it at all.
Finally, tonight around 5 I decided it just had to be done. 10 miles in 1 hour, 37 minutes (9:42 pace). Wasn't the best run ever, but I think it's because I'm thinking through every possible negative scenario for the race. Real positive, Vanessa. Anyway, the run is done and oddly enough, I have energy again!
Maybe too much energy? I'm pretty sure pretending to be a ninja is NOT normal after running 10 miles.
I'm officially the last person in the world who needs an extra hour of sleep tonight, but thanks anyway Daylight Savings Time!
Congrats to all the amazing runners who were part of Tennessee Ragnar Relay today, and who ran the Savannah Rock n' Roll half and full marathon. Can't wait to read recaps, and of course good luck to all the runners tomorrow in NYC!
Do you follow along to get updates for runners you know during their races?
If I know someone running very well, I do check! Especially for bigger marathons where they have constant updates. I may try to stream the NYC marathon tomorrow - I get so excited watching!
What do you do when you don't have the motivation to work out?
Getting dressed for a run always works. Every time I look down I remember - "oh, right. I should be running." Eventually it works!
