Time for a pep talk

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

I rode my bike into work this morning. I intend to ride home and then go for a walk/run so that I can get a brick workout in. Because of this, I didn't go for a walk at lunch. But now, as the ride home looms, I'm balking.

It's hot. Not terribly hot, mind you. Mid 90's, 20% humidity. Just hot enough to know I'm going to sweat like crazy on the way home. And I'm feeling a little cranky and headachy. So part of me really does not want to ride, let alone try running after the 10-mile ride.

So I'm writing this blog to remotivate myself. It's not windy, so the ride home will be nice. And I'm going to feel a great sense of accomplishment once I'm done with this brick workout. I'd feel downright silly if I drove home. And maybe I'll sleep really well tonight if I do this workout.

Yeah, that helped.

    Sometimes motivation is in short supply. Its the workouts we do when we dont feel us provide power for the workouts when we do...

    I did it. It sucked, but I did it.

It took me almost ten minutes to transition from the bike to running gear. And I only ran about half as much as I usually do. But I did it.

Now I need a cookie.
