Just finished my run. I really did not want to do it. I tried to talk myself out of it. I was looking to use any possible excuse, but realized that there really was nothing preventing me from running. So I did it -- and I feel so good. I have been suffering lately from a lack of motivation and confidence. I can't figure out if I'm not motivated because I lack confidence, or if I lack confidence because I haven't been motivated. Kind of a chicken & the egg thing. Can I expect this every time I am training for a big event? I've got to get focused for my half marathon at the end of October. Hopefully today is a step in that direction.
