I had mused over the weekend what it would be like maintaining a running regime over the winter. I found out this morning (24th June!!), not easy.
I set out in good spirits (W7R2 had been great - actually ran for 30 mins, and did 5K), but when Laura said 'time to run' today, I just felt this mental hill had suddenly loomed in front of me. 25 minutes seemed an age away, and as I ran, I just kept thinking about stopping. I hate these kind of days!
Anyway, I did it. I ran the 25 minutes, and RunKeeper said I had done 3.1 miles by the end of 30 minutes (5 + 25 mins). So I really cannot complain. I just felt really negative about the whole thing today. I think new weather, and new route are needed.
(BTW, serious question - how do you keep motivated in the winter, when it is cold, windy and grey, much like today?)
