I’m at the point where I pretty much forget what it feels like to run outside. I did my workout on Thursday on the treadmill and I took yesterday off because honestly, it was freezing and the thought of running on the treadmill after Thursday work out made me want to throw up. Sooo, here I sit… trying to force myself to step out the door to drive to the gym to get a light run in before my long run tomorrow (which I am doing outside because it’s going to be 37-heatwave). I know if I don’t do it I’m going to regret it, so I just need to do it.
On the weekends I am typically a morning runner but this morning Ella had a play date with one of my best friends son. There is literally nothing where we live for kiddos so when my girlfriend asked if I was interested in a play date at this place in Latham (40-50 minutes away), I jumped on the opportunity.
Yes, I “twin” with her as much as I can! I actually asked her this morning if she wanted to twin with me and she said “yeah mommy yeah!” There is going to be a day that she is going to say no, so I am going to absorb as much of this while I can. The kids had soooo much fun this morning that this happened on the way home….
So, after a crazy morning leaving me wanting to partake in a nap, I am forced to step out of my warm house and hit the gym…. I’m soooo not into and the thought of even having to drive to the gym makes me want to crawl in a ball and hide in my bed…. but the fact of the matter is Boston waits for no one. It will go on whether I go running or not, the only difference will be whether or not I’m prepared on Patriot’s Day…. and THAT is all the motivation I need to get out of the house….soooo my friends I’m out… wish me luck I’m going to need it!
How do you take that first step out of the door on the days you want to lay in bed all day?
How far are you going this weekend?
