Alison is complaining today about her lack of motivation and I totally relate, but at least she's still getting in a fair modicum of mileage. I woke up this morning, well rested and fully intending to run and then made the completely conscious decision to roll over and go back to sleep for another hour. It's not a big deal if that happens now and again, I know, but it's been happening a lot lately. I'm trying to to worry about it too much though. It's chilly outside, I've just run a target race, I have a bit of a cold, I'm still not sure what the deal was with my injury...I think it's okay if I spend a week or two in low gear. I just need to make sure that my little hibernation from running is a temporary thing.
As of 4 'o clock this afternoon, the transit strike is supposed to be over, but I don't know how long it will take for all the various busses and trains to actually be in service again. I rather liked the adventure of it all, but then again, I normally walk to work, so it didn't really affect me much. I'm sure I'd have a much different opinion about the ordeal if I was one of those small business owners who was expecting to make 20% of my yearly profits this week!
I think tonight would be a good opportunity to get back on that bike of mine. Even just an hour of spinning might put me in a better frame of mind towards my training. Especially since it will allow me to keep a box of tissue close at hand...ah-choo!
