When You’re Not in the Mood to Run

Despite my passion for running, it’s not uncommon for me to grow gloriously unmotivated put on those muddy shoes  after work for my afternoon run. I know I’ll enjoy it, but …

All of us, no matter how disciplined we are, experience periods of uncertainty toward our commitment to consistent exercise, and sometimes we just need a break.

One thing I tell myself that makes lacing up my sneakers a little easier is this:

Run as slow as you want to, but just get out there and run.

Since this is my first marathon I’m not running the race with a specific time goal in mind. This has allowed me to run at an easy pace on some days which has made my training much more enjoyable.
