About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

The Common Crap

I have a case of the "I don't wanna run" today. Symptoms include lethargy and a desire to lay on the couch and watch TV.

Is there a known cure for this?

***Edit: The cure for the above ailment appears to be suckin' it up and gettin' out there for a run whether I want to or not. I did a 3 miler (29:41), and once I was out there, I was glad I "womaned up" and determined to do it. Now I can go lay on the couch and not feel guilty. Score!***

Beer and lots of it :-)

Don't sweat it, you HAVE been working hard to get everything done so why not take a day? ;-)

The only way to beat it is to put your running shoes on and tell yourself that if it doesn't feel good when you get going that you can stop. Once you are out and going it feels good. Or drink beer like Marcy said. ;>)

Yes. The cure is spring time and daylight savings time. These dark, cold days are killing my motivation.

When I get home from work tonight I'm hoping that my wife's in the mood so that I too can get woman'd up.

Oh, is that not how you meant it? How disappointing.

I feel the same way. Skipped my run today, but i'm over it. There's always tomorrow ;)

Way to woman up! i have another expression for the same term but I will keep it a G rating tonight. All these Christmas movies the kid has me watching has me censored.

Love the cure

Kevin said...

The only cure is definitely getting out there and doing it. I find once I get out there, I am able to get it done

Great job Jess.

For some reason I was thinking about all the Half Marathons you have run this year. It just hit me. I have no idea why I even thought of it.

You had a great year in running!

MCM Mama said...

Yep, you found the cure. Unfortunately, I find that it's a recurring disease here...

My best runs are often the ones I wanted to do the least. Way to get out there!

Marlene said...

Way to get off the couch & run!

Ted said...

Way to go, Jess ! If that happen again, just say to yourself "I am going out for run just for a mile or 10 minutes." After you do a mile, it will be easier to say "Hey, lets do another couple more" .

You are so good. I hope to get my mojo back very soon!
