Weight I have lost

First Post

OK, I have been running for over a year now. I have lost 10-15 pounds given the day.
I never thought myself a runner...hell, I'm overweight, I drink beer and I hate going outside.

So all of the sudden I have race fever, EXCEPT I can't motivate myself to train. I don't know if it is the hours I'm keeping (I get up at 4AM, and am exhausted by 4PM), that I have a lot going on, I'm lazy or what? This all suddenly happened in February when I was training for my 10K. I was fine for 5 weeks and then I just didn't want to do it anymore. I was probably the most physically fit for a run ever, and I had my worst time.

The next week I ran a 5K and had a great time. Since then I have slacked but I have signed up for 3 5Ks in the next month.

So today, I really don't have time. I had the luxury of sleeping until 7AM, and tonight I am making chili and scones for my work chili cook-off. With the pollen count in the 2000+ range, I don't want to go to the gym. I'll ride the stationary bike. It has lousy calories burned but at least I'm doing something...

whoo ho on your first post.

I hate high pollen count days. I actually got an every day use inhaler to see if I would be able to deal with the spring this year, as it's the first year I've been active outside in the spring, or at all, if we really want the truth.
