I didn't really have a lot of time today to run. I had about 45 minutes to work with so I had to get out and go for my 5 miler quick. I cruised in just under 40 minutes for run and am happy to have gotten it in. For me, motivation has a snowball effect. I have been a little sluggish the last couple months coming off a slow summer. I finally have been ramping up and even though I was rushed, I was determined to get today in. In recent weeks, I would probably have skipped it, but I am mentally where I need to be.
I think this is going hand in hand with the fact that I am eating healthy again and my nutrition is a positive part of my training scope right now. My running and my nutrition feed off each other. I definitely do a better job with either, when one is dialed in.
This weekend, I'm going to try and be active as much as possible, without my running hoes on.
