Good intentions

I woke up this morning with every intention of completing my scheduled workout. I was looking forward to it actually, since I knew we were in for a heatwave of sorts. On the schedule: Run 0:45, workout code S2. S2 = pick-ups of 20-30 sec every two minutes. Easy enough. I made my coffee, ate my healthy breakfast of yogurt, fruit, and granola, and looked out the window. Pouring rain. Crap. This seemingly endless gray weather has really got me in a funk. The thought of going all the way to the Y to run on a treadmill for 45 min makes me want to puke a little, so what did I do? Nothing. I spent the day doing approximately 1 hour of work, followed by several hours of research on amazing honeymoon destinations, all of which I’ve come to the conclusion we can’t afford. In case you are wondering, I work from home doing freelance video editing, and this time of year is always slow. How slow? Very.

I sat in my Pj’s all day and didn’t even take a shower until 4pm. Now I just feel like crap about it. How am I going to complete 70.3 miles of physical exertion when I can’t even motivate myself to run a stinkin’ 45 min?? I am trying to tell myself it’s ok, I will make up the run tomorrow, but that’s not really the point of a training schedule, now is it? I have never been a stellar manager of my time, and in the art of procrastination, I am a master. A black belt, if you will. I vow today that this will change, and I will become more productive. I need to.

If only the sun would come out just a little…
