Motivation

Turns out today, I have none. I’m sure that other people must experience this as well but today… I don’t feel like doing anything. It’s hot out, my dogs are cuddling, my coffee is nice and I just don’t want to move.
The last two days I’ve been pretty productive, I ran one day and cycled the next and followed each with a Jillian Michaels 30-day shred video to help develop some strength but today…no motivation.
Now, I recognize that rest days are important, and I could…in theory…make this a rest day but the problem with rest days is that once I take one…I want to to take another.
I’m not sure if anyone is actually reading my blog, but if you are: how do you stay motivated? What do you do to prepare for events? Does anyone else have as much trouble with rest days as I do (either not wanting to take them or taking too many?)
Somewhere in here is my motivation…

One thought on “Motivation

  1. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “give up what you want today for the thing you want most” so if you really want to preform in top shape at your triathlon then you have to give up some time with warm puggles and coffee.

    But what always motivates me is a story of Mike Tyson. When he was in his prime he would have to train everyday and he hated it, so what he would tell himself is “Train now, suffer now and live forever as a champion.” And he pushed through.

    I know that you’ve got the heart of a champion! Keep up the training and the rest of the world will know as well!
