Ok, I admit it. I am feeling REALLY lazy and am having a hard time getting back into my running groove. After having a cold/allergies/whatever where I just couldn't breathe through my nose at ALL for several days, allergy throat, teething babe that is boycotting nighttime sleep...I'm just pooped before I even get started most days lately!
On the way to the bear's (my alternate nickname for bee) 9 month doctor's appointment today, I found some inspiration in seeing other runners out getting in their miles, but I was still so exhausted I didn't know how I would get out there myself. I mean, seriously, it hits me when I sit down, my body is just weak (you know like when you first wake up and you can't make a fist with your hands? It's like that. All. Day. Long.)
So I decided that I would come back home, have a CLICK, and try to get motivated. I am having the vanilla flavor today and I think I like this concoction I made even more than the mocha (gasp! what am I saying?? Vanilla over Chocolate? Who am I?!). I made it with half water, half milk this time with a touch of half and half since I'm all about having cream in my coffee. Delicious - this would be fantastic blended with ice, too, like a frappucino. I really have to order some more of this mix! It's doing the trick to get me energized, thank GOODness. I put on my SkinnyRunner shirt so that once the iPod and I are charged up I can hit the road for 3 miles, heat or not. They said on the news that the humidity is down today and tomorrow, but I don't know, it still feels kinda sticky out there. At least it's not blazing like it was yesterday - the kind of day it's a little hard to breathe the air, it's so hot and humid!
So, how do you get back into your exercise groove after a break? How do you gear up when you're lacking all motivation? :)
