since i haven't been hitting my target mileage, i am adjusting the remaining 12 weeks of training and admitting to myself that it won't get up as high as originally planned (now mid-50's vs. mid-60's).
i really don't know what the big deal is. all day at work i think about going for a run afterward, but once i get home i am no longer motivated. if i could just run at 5am like i used to... the alarm and i have not been getting along for quite some time now (cough, 2 years, cough).
sunday (2/20) afternoon run: 8.05 miles, 1:16:04 (avg pace 9:26), 56*
no motivation today either. josh talked me into driving somewhere and running there for a change of pace (usually i just run from the front door). i finally peeled myself off the couch around 2pm and drove over to an old 4-mile loop of mine. my body still felt sleepy, like it does when you first wake up in the morning, and my hamstrings were sore from lifting friday (hello deadlifts). i trotted along, slowly, not really enjoying myself. i knew i was just going to take this week easy to make sure i fully recovered from the plague but still, it'd be nice to feel more fluid.
so... who's going to call/text me at 5am and drag my behind out of bed?
