Reading the other team members, I would just be an echo...but it's good advice. The good thing is you recognize the problem...one I also struggle with. I have to just do it! make a schedule for exercise, stick to it, and reward myself for persevering. Hang in there! Committment helps me. Joining a team who notice if I am moving or not.

(With the caveat that you CAN take the day off.)
1. Put on your gear. 2. Get out the door. 3. Give it five minutes. Jog. 4. If, after five minutes, you're done, you're done. It's one of those days but you got up and out. HOWEVER 5. If, after five minutes, you're still running, then you discovered that today really was a running day.

Unfortunately motivation comes from within each of us, however, if you are feeling under the weather and have a headache, it's OK to take a day off. This journey you are on is one you will be on a lifetime so missing a day here and there to allow you body to fully recover may benefit your body more than forcing yourself to run.
I hope you feel better soon!

For some reason, I'm feeling a mega slump today. I had plans to go for a run today, and I want to, but I'm feeling sluggish-I have a headache, my eyes are sore, and I'm feeling tired in general. Can anyone offer some encouragement/tough love to get me up and moving? xoxo
