Staying Motivated

I know I'm not the first to deal with staying motivated for running. It's unnatural, at least for me, to be so sharply focused every single day. My situation this time is slightly different in that I don't want to go running to get faster. I feel like I've been doing that for a while and have successful results during races (NJ Marathon, Run As One, Queens Biathlon). I just wanted to go running for the pure joy of it.

So I did.

I'm going to enjoy this week as a recovery week and get back on my horse when I feel like it. Work has been taking a little more out of me and forced me to rearrange my schedule. When I find the balance, I'll be back to chasing lower times.
