Motivation, Where Is It?
Where, oh where, is my Motivation? Last summer and fall, I had a pretty good
groove going with consistent running (about 20 to 25 miles per week). Then
winter came along with the birth of our second child and it I stopped running
for a few weeks, that turned into a few months, and now I find myself almost
as out of shape as where I started back before I began running last summer.
After a few weeks of trying to get back into it, I have had very spotty
results, largely due to a lack of motivation. Each time I am forcing myself
to get on that treadmill. I used to be anxious to get going.
Where did Mr. Motivation go? Where is he hiding? I must find him. I must
find him, soon.
