Motivation...that is what I needed today! After working all day and standing on my feet in uncomfortable shoes, all I wanted to do was go home and lay on the couch with some chips. It was a hard day! Not only was I tired from work I had a bunch of traffic to top it all off. Cry me a river...
As soon as I got home I wrote a couple emails and decided it was just too sunny of a day not to go for a run. I knew that I would feel better afterwards anyways. You always do right?
My other secret to motivating myself to run is picking a route that also has a shortcut just in case. That way lets say my favorite 3.5 mile run has a shortcut at the 1.5 mile mark and can cut my run into a 2 miler. I love this because I talk myself into at least doing the "short" run if I'm tired. I have yet to take the shortcut! This totally works ;)
So...it was a great run today with my little yorkie Teddy :)
