Sorry for the radio silence, but I’ve been busy working on some big changes coming soon for the blog. Plus my personal life has been filled to the brim.
I am need of some advice from those who have developed their blog a bit more. . . .
Are you self-hosted? With which company? What are the benefits?
Have you redesigned your blog? Who redesigned it for you?
With my busy schedule, I haven’t done a lot of running recently, but here’s the mileage I did accomplish this past week.
Saturday, March 22 – 5 miles + 20 minutes weight lifting
Sunday – 6 miles
Monday – 4 miles
Tuesday – 8 miles
Wednesday – 4 miles
Thursday – 8 miles
Friday – off
Total mileage: 35 miles
My coach has kindly asked me not to reveal details of my training plan, but I did want to give a run-down of my mileage each day. I usually have 2-3 hard workouts each week with 2 strength days as well.
To be honest, my motivation is waning these days. I am sick and tired of the snow, cold, and ice and am not sure when spring will actually come. While conditions have been improving, I still long for summer days of running.
To try and regain some motivation, I sought the internet for some motivational posts and quotes. I really like these slogans and often live by some of them every day.
Even 15, 20, or 30 minutes is better than nothing.
This is SO my motto—just ask my husband. Actually, I “take” the time to run. And I find it is always worth it in the end.
Yes, I am an overachiever and abide by this often. I also think this mentality has helped me reach the level of success I have been able to achieve.
This is most certainty true for those of us who have been dealing with extreme winter weather conditions this past winter. (Although the amount of snow in this picture is nothing compared to what most of us have had to deal with this winter, right?)
I often ebb and flow through periods of lacking motivation and those with a great deal of motivation. I know this will eventually pass, but when you are in the midst of it, it can feel like the end of the world sometimes.
How do you regain motivation when you find yours lacking?
