No Running Drive Today!!!

I must say, I am quite the unmotivated runner this week. I may have had the best race last Saturday and developed an ego the size of the Atlantic, but I have no desire to run! I want my rest days and my week off.

Maybe it's the heat? Or perhaps my body is genuinely exhausted. Either way, I'd rather kick my feet up with chocolate dipped waffle cone stuffed full of Coldstone ice cream (who's buying?).

I'm stubborn though. I refuse to take unscheduled days off unless I'm sick or injured. Even under those circumstances, it is hard to convince me not to run. Though, it wouldn't take much to persuade me to eat Coldstone (who's buying?).

Today, my run today was "easy" (easy would have been me laying on the couch with the above ice cream). It was a 5 miler on the treadmill and boy, was I excited to start!

That's the look of pure determination!!! ;-)

I am still trying to follow a 35 mile week, but Saturday will ultimately decide whether I stick to 35 or "accidentally" run more. I would only have to do 10 miles to reach my goal, but the weather is supposed to be super nice and I'm sure you know how it will end: 13+ miles. Then, I can almost guarantee that will be another week of Lazy Runner's Syndrome.

My week off will be here before I know it. I have 3 more to go until then. I plan on full rest and relaxation beginning right after my Run for Freedom 5k on July 4th. It will be perfect...I will suffer from heat exhaustion after competing in sky high temps, but I will get to enjoy a week praising all that is holy that I don't have to run in that weather!
My luck, we will have record low temperatures the whole time. :-\

But anyway, I made it to my running weekend and I am about to get lazy! Enjoy the rest of your hump day. I'm going to indulge in a snack! :)

How do you motivate yourself?
