How do you keep yourself motivated to workout during the week?
I’d like to think that the hundreds of dollars that I put out for race registrations is motivation enough, but it doesn’t always work out that way. I did get up really early Saturday morning and managed to get a few miles in before I had to get home and showered for work. This time instead of doing one of the C25K sessions or a dedicated run workout, I ended up walking. In my Vibrams.
I don’t think that walking in them is the best idea for me. I was walking at a pace that rivals my pace for races (my walking pace, not my run/walk pace). It felt like there was more wear and tear on my body after doing that then there had been in any of the runs that I’ve done since I got the VFFs. Of course, going to the store and standing for 4 hours afterwards didn’t help me any. I guess it’s a good thing that I am more corfortable running in the VFFs than I am walking. That will only force me to get faster.
Now if only I can get up the desire to get to the gym tonight…
