Truth be told Thursday

It has been too cold for me to run outside the last few days. I was outside for my morning run with my dog on Monday and Tuesday - but haven't gone out the last couple mornings.

Truth be told . . .
I am simply using the temperature as an excuse. There have been plenty of times that I have run in colder temp's.
So the question is why am I
veg'ing out . . .
making excuses . . .
hitting the snooze button . . .
feeling lazy . . .
why or why????

This is especially hard to admit considering all of the inspirational blogs that I read.

Everyone is so committed . . .
running with little ones in joggers . . .
running tempo runs . . .
running hills . . .
signing up for marathons . . .
and I am being lazy.

Well all I can say is . . .

Tomorrow is another day - and I hope to be out there tomorrow morning running - no matter what the temperature.



  1. You can do this! ...sometimes we have to shut our mind off and just do it :)

  2. You can do it. NO matter how far just get out there and start the habit of not letting your self down. (I type this on the heals of a rest day...which wasn't supposed to be today!!) We all miss days, make excuses. It's in the getting back to it that we prove we are just a little different than the majority...we are runners!

  3. YUP - I just got back from a 2 mile morning run with my dog sophie.

    The -2 temp didn't stop me. I was pretty comfy - with just a little sweat on the back.


  4. You can do it! Have a wonderful weekend :-)

  5. Oh you'll get your mojo back with a vengeance. This time of the year stinks for motivation.

  6. I just read this article about getting up and running. It said, you always dread it and then once you get out there... you are glad you did.

    Go girl!!

  7. Everyone experiences the "i don't want to's". And if they said they dont...then they are lying :) I just tell myself if you get out there and still hate it after 15 minutes then you can quit. And guess what? I've never actually quit. Pretty cool how that works.
