    Long Hiatus

    Post by xc_babe09 on Thu Mar 03, 2011 12:56 am

    I have had a long hiatus from here (college will do that to you) and from running. I am trying to get back to running more but I just don't have any motivation or time.

    Any suggestions on what I can do to stay motivated??

    Yeah, there's not really anyone here but me.

    As far as motivation, pick something you want to do. Pick something you know you can't do now (so not like some chick on "I Used to be Fat" who decides to do a 5k). You already know you can do that, so you don't care about training for it.

    Me, I'm doing a marathon in May.

    It also helps to find somebody to run with. Not everybody who runs at your college is on the XC/Track team (my school doesn't have either). You should still be able to link up with somebody who likes to run. If it seems sketchy, just arrange to run on an easy day anyway so you don't miss out on a great workout because you had to slow down for some chump. Also, don't fall in love with them and ruin your life.
