I'm runniing a 5k race tomorrow and I'm SO NOT READY.
I think that's why I'm getting so nervous for it. I was scheduled to run last night, but ended up going out to eat dinner with my family after work. And tonight something else has come up that I can't get out of.
It's hard for me to understand why I don't have the motivation lately. When I first started running, I was so dedicated and WANTED to go out every day...nothing stopped me. I would turn plans down because I was scheduled to go running. What happened to that??? It's been about a month since I ran my last race and since then I haven't been motivated to do anything, which surprises me because I had a great time training for that race.
Hopefully I can get with it soon...as I need to start training for the 1/2 marathon. I think being on an official training schedule will help me.
I just bought a new book and it's so great. "The Complete Book of Running for Women" by Claire Kowalchik. I haven't gotten very far through it yet, but she's hitting all the great points and answering many questions that I have for being a beginner runner.
