My pity party is over

After I pissed and moaned a while about my lack of motivation and the loss of my running mojo, I changed my clothes and went out for a run!  I had an hour to kill before yoga on Monday so I took a nice 5.5 mile loop around the area I work; got back in time for yoga and felt like a million bucks - yeah for me!  This was the first evening where it really felt like winter was on the way; thank heavens I had left a jacket and pair of gloves in my trunk (probably from last winter).

For the past week I ended up with 30.5 miles, two yoga sessions & two boot camp sessions and I feel so much better.  We all know it can be difficult to get out the door for a run or to hit the gym, but we never regret it once we're pumping some iron or hitting the streets.  Since we all know how good we feel when we exercise why is it ever a problem to get out there and do it?

I'm working on my 2011 race calendar and trying to pull together a Boston training schedule; I can't wait to see what 2011 brings!

I will leave you with this silly picture of my kids - have an awesome weekend!


  1. What a great week you had! I hope I can get my miles back up like that and maintain the cross training. Way to go!

  2. wow, what a huge week! great mileage, not to mention the yoga AND bootcamp? unbelievable. glad that you got your mojo back :)

  3. Great to see you getting back in the groove! Good for you!!

  4. That picture is hilarious.
    Way to go, too! 30.5 miles sounds like you found some serious motivation. Consistency is the key. And inertia is the opponent. Way to rise to the challenge and have a great week.
    And nice reminder, too, I really need to see if I have any important gear hiding in my trunk.

  5. glad you're back in it!
    What a great pic of your kiddos!

  6. Hi Kathy,
    You are making me feel like a bit of a slacker! This week has been a slow one for me:) Nice job on your miles. I can't wait to hear what training plan you will go with for Boston!

    Cute picture:)
