I've been lazy

Once I break a habit, I find it so much harder to get back into it. Now, five miles seem daunting. Which is a problem since there's the whole birthday race thing that's coming up. 

To ease my conscience, I've tried to do at least one active thing every day.
Poor board. Totally looks like it might break. 

Long boarding is fun. 
Unfortunately long boarding isn't part of the HBBC point system. Oh well. I have a sad number of points so far. But I WILL kick it up this week. 

 But on my personal activity tracking, I decided to label long boarding as core work. It takes some sort of core strength to balance on these bad boys. So that counts, right? I'm just going to imagine everyone nodding yes. 

On the bright side, there's no more shin pain or any other running pain. So now there's no more excuse and  I'm going to kill my training from now on. 

How do you stay motivated? Do you find it hard to get back into something after a long break? 


  1. Yes, I definitely have a hard time staying motivated after taking time off! I really need to get back into a training plan so that I can have more consistency with my running. I really need my peroneal tendonitis to go away though!

    Good luck with your training!

  2. I find that long breaks make me really excited to come back. I'm strange though.

  3. I do find it tough to get back into when I don't have a set schedule. But when I'm forced to take time off because of injury, it drives me nuts.
