Not sure what to say.....
I have been a huge slacker lately. In every part of my life. I guess you can say I am half ass-ing everything. I am not cleaning the house like I should. I am not doing the laundry enough and I am not making healthy dinner choices for my family. I am also half ass-ing my workouts. Let's just say, I am only doing what I HAVE to, to get by. I am getting my Saturday long runs in, and I do a mid week long run of 8-10 miles, and then at least one to two more runs during the week of 4-5 miles. I am not focusing on speed work, I am not doing hill repeats, and I am not cross training at all. I haven't lifted weights in weeks. What the hell is my problem?
I want to Spring Clean, I want to be better about the laundry. I want to cook fabulous healthy meals for my family. I want to qualify for Boston again, therefore I want to work on my speed. I want to do hill repeats because I know it will make me a stronger runner. I want to lift weights, because I know it is good for me. So why am I not getting these things done?
I wish I knew the answer to these questions that I have about myself. The only thing I can think of is that, this has just been a VERY LONG Winter. Seriously. Just when you think the weather is going to be nice again, it goes back to below freezing temps. UGH..... I could scream. To top all of this off, I haven't been blogging as much, nor have I been reading other blogs. Again, it's not that I don't want to, I just can't seem to find any motivation for anything else but reading these days. I have checked out several books from the Library and when I do this, I end up living in my bedroom and reading all day long.
So today is Friday. I am running 18 again tomorrow. I don't usually run on Sunday's, so come Monday..... I am getting back on track. I am saying it here.... Spring Cleaning, laundry, cooking, my workouts, it will all be better and Stronger. I am sick of being lazy.
