Put on my running kit and didn't go!

Put on my running kit and didn't go!

Yesterday I got dressed to do my Friday run then sat down and had some coffee then some more. It was a proper dreich day as dull as dishwater and I just couldn't face a run and by late afternoon I had talked myself into needing a 'rest' day. Woke up this morning to grey skies but went out and did my 'Friday' run and half way through the sun came out - now I have to do my 'Friday' planks and strength exercises and I'll be back on track. I've found it really difficult over the past couple of days to stay motivated maybe it is these long periods with no sunshine? Hopefully, today's sunshine will give me a boost that I can take into next week ;)

  • Hi, well done for going for a run today :)

  • Thanks Decaf1 it was somehow easier to get out and do it today. Even got the planks out of the way ;)

  • I know exactly how you feel! No good pushing too hard if you don't really feel like it.

  • Yesterday I just felt drained I think I ran too fast on Wednesday when I was trying to keep up with two men half my age. I don't mean that to sound like I was chasing young men I was just trying to use them to pace myself! I hope you're feeling a bit better Caz28 it's really tough losing a much loved pet.

  • Dreich is such a brilliant word for describing days like today. It sounds just as miserable as the weather.🙁

  • totally hear you! beautiful picture.

  • Definitely difficult on grey days 😊 Could you do an indoor workout instead?

    Well done on today's success 😊😊😊

  • Probably Anna61 but an indoor workout does not feel the same somehow. Plus if I'm honest 6Km on the cross trainer is much more difficult than just running the distance - well for me it is anyways. I should use the difficulty of the cross trainer to get me out running - all about getting the right headset or what! Seems daft really, 153 runs this year all to schedule but a wobble yesterday. I think I need to be aware of late November gremlins..... :)
