Fighting that lazy feeling

I ran this morning!  It feels like more of an accomplishment than it should.  I mean, I should be running almost every day, so the fact that I ran this morning shouldn’t feel so momentous.  I need to get back into the habit.  Whatever, I still did good.  I ran three miles today, no walking.  Usually, when I’ve taken this much time off, I have to add a couple of short stretches of walking.  Except for about a week’s worth of slow 2-mile jaunts with the dogs and two 3-mile workouts by myself (including today’s), the only running I’ve done in the last few weeks has been the races (three in November).  I’ve been lazy since the end of October.  I just reread that list of what I’ve done and it doesn’t come across as all that lazy, but to put it another way, I’ve gone running about 12 times in 6 weeks.  I should have gone running about 30 times (5 days a week, 6 weeks).

With colder weather coming, though, I’ll need to change my routine.  I should do that anyway.  Add strength training, something like that.

Well, I have to get ready to go.  Dentist appointment today (left side deep cleaning!  Woo!) and then work.  Exciting stuff.

    I think people shouldn’t be allowed to read blogs unless they comment. I did get some comments on my last postings, but I’d like more. You shouldn’t feel lazy; you have done a lot, plus you were sick. I’d like to do some strength/weight training, too. Is there a good video for an incentive?

    I agree, which is why I’ve been commenting on yours. And Jess’s. (Jess’? Jessica’s. There.)

    I forgot about the sick part. Always a good excuse to not exercise. But I still feel lazy. I’ve put five pounds back on! That’s laziness. And Thanksgiving.

    I don’t know of any good videos for weight/strength training. I’m sure there are some, but I’ve never tried them. Yoga Booty Ballet incorporates weights, and pilates is good for toning (and uses resistance bands). There are lots of pilates videos. The spell-checker doesn’t like the word “pilates”. Even if I capitalize it. Get with it, spell-checker!
