Unknown motivation


Not sure what got me up to run this morning - I sure didn't feel, last night, like I'd want to run today. Actually, I didn't feel like running this morning either, but I got up, threw my stuff on, and got out the door somehow. (Must be having the training plan written down on a calendar... )Once I got started, I felt pretty good. Did a 6-mile easy run, the backwards (counter-clockwise) version of a loop that I sometimes do. Funny how you don't realize where the downhills are until you go the other way and see them as uphills...

That's how I felt on my run this evening too- I was pretty tired from working all day, so I thought I'd run like crap. But I got a 2nd wind (3rd? 10th?) out of no where and actually ran a couple pretty quick miles right at the end. Felt good!

Does your loop seem harder going backwards? Running something in the opposite direction always messes up my head.

Sometimes hitting another year of age is motivating to keep fit and not deteriorate like your father.
