Jason and I are finally getting back into our running routine now that we've settled into our new place. It has been so much harder for me than I thought it would be! He jumped right back into it, and has been increasing his miles steadily and is always ready to go. I'm still hanging around the 2 mile mark, and trying to muster up some motivation to get my butt out on the road! I seem to be really intolerant of the dry heat, because my nose feels like there's 1000 fire ants in it when I breathe in. That's when the panic sets in and my breathing gets all sloppy. I had weight induced asthma for a few years, and there is nothing scarier than not being able to catch your breath. The asthma is gone, but I'm still always paranoid about getting that feeling. Bringing along some music has definitely helped, and keeps me distracted from obsessing over my breathing
I've ran one 5k around the neighborhood this month, and it felt so good! What's funny is that I absolutely love how I feel after I get done with a run. It's the getting going and out the door part that I really struggle with. Today I got my run in nice and early, knowing that if I put it off until after dinner that it just wasn't going to happen. I keep telling myself that 2 miles is better than making excuses and watching The Office...
What about you? Do you struggle with lack of motivation with workouts/running? What do you do to keep on track?
