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...
