Sunday morning, I thought to myself, "Do I really want to do this? Do I really want to do another marathon?" Maybe if I sign up and it's official I'll feel more dedicated to training because I can't back out. Maybe it's because I know how hard training is. Maybe because it would be so much easier to just focus on improving my half marathon time.
My marathon training buddy is feeling the same way (she hasn't signed up yet either). That was kind of a relief to hear, realizing I wasn't the only one having second thoughts. It's a lot of work, a lot of hours... But I love a challenge. I need a challenge. Because working out for the sake of working out isn't enough for me. Working out to burn calories isn't enough for me. I want something measurable. Like a PR. :P
Runners, how do you stay motivated?
