When you just don't wanna

This morning I had planned to do my 8.+ loop while in VA.  
LBM does not yet sleep very well through the night at the VA house so at 4:30  found myself awake.  Having only slept for 4 hours I did what any normal person would do, I turned off the alarm.
Hubbs does not like to wake with the sun so all the blinds are closed at the VA house and I slept until well past time to go run!
We had carpet cleaners coming at 9 and I wanted to have breakfast over and leaned up before they arrive so still no run.
I just didn't want to run.  Okay I said it out loud.  Maybe it was the dreary weather.  Maybe it was the 96 earlier days of running catching up with me but I simply did not want to run.
But I did.  Hubbs helped shoo me out the door.  I was so glad I got out here!  Once I started I still was eager to rejoin the family for activities we had planned but I felt great!  My miles flew by.  Without the stroller I really pushed and tried to hold a steady strong pace.
Success!  Day #97 - 8.5 miles to end my week with 51.5.  
I just didn't wanna give up on the promises I have made to myself.

  1. You're amazing! Way to get out there. :)

  2. Nice job getting out on that run, despite not being mentally in the game. I know it's hard somedays but you're so strong and such an inspiration. I MUST get my act together and get busy again (though I can't run right now, I can do SOMETHING, right??) (hugs)

  3. You have an amazing husband - great for you for getting our the door.

  4. Isn't it great to have a hubby who is supportive like that? Great job!

  5. Wow! This is what makes you a true runner! Going out there even when you don't feel like it!

  6. yay for getting out there. too funny that hubby had to shoo you out :)

  7. awesome, like always. I am most often motivated to get out there by not wanting to let myself down. whatever it takes, right?

  8. Good for you! It's tough to motivate yourself on "those" kind of days, but you (with help fromt he hubs) did it!

  9. You have a good hubby for shooing you out :)
    You are so close to another goal met!! I love following your progress!
