I mentioned incorporating speed runs into my weekly schedule, so I can be a jaguar rather than a sloth. But I hate them.
Here are some excuses I've used to avoid my scheduled speed runs:
- It's too windy.
- It's too pretty out for a short run. I'd rather spend more time outdoors on a leisurely jog.
- It's too late at night and I will be all hyped up and never get to sleep. Plus, I'd rather go to the movies.
-It's too early and I would benefit more from an extra hour of sleep.
- Speed work is too hard with Lola, and I just can't leave her pitiful face at home, so I'll just go for a longer moderate run.
Sloth it is, then.
Do you ever make excuses? How do you motivate yourself to do exercise you don't enjoy, but know is good for you?
