First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for their great comments. We did come to a decision. On Tuesday, we went to IKEA as a family and got G her new bed. (mommy put it together all by herself last night while daddy was at softball) Then, Ben went and got the coveted xBox 360. He did however sell off 4 of his other game systems that just sit unused all of the time.
Anyway - back to the topic of the day: my motivation level.
I've really been dragging the past couple of weeks, and my running has suffered. I feel like I'm practically dragging myself to the treadmill. My legs feel like lead and I just don't want to run. I've started cheating a bit on my long runs too, which is the worst thing I could do. Its one thing to cheat on a short run, and only do 2.5 when I've got 3 on the schedule. But to only run 10 when I've got 14 to run is a big difference.
I haven't had as much energy either, and I think I'm walking more than I should. But I just can't seem to make myself get back into LOVING running like I have been.
Its enough that I'm questioning the marathon. I know that I'm going to barely finish. In fact, 6 hours is my goal. I'll probably embarrass myself by coming in last place or something horrid like that.
What the heck is wrong with me? And how do I get my motivation back?
