Measly.

Slackluster.

Yeah I slacked with the running and workouts in general this month and I was also busy off my gourd.  It’s very hard to run if you are sitting in the car, on the train or in an airplane.  Excuses aside, I did have trouble with motivation this month. I just wan’t feeling it. 

But that’s all changed, I’ve been [insert Arnold voice here] pumped up this past week with a nice 6 miler this past Saturday, Bikram (sans hotties) on Sunday, a lifting session and a run on the Mall yesterday, and even a quick cardio session on the elliptical this morning (to keep my energy up for tonight’s imbibe-a-thon).  I feel like I am finally back in the swing of things. Plus, I have two races coming up–which always aid in upping my motivation.  This Sunday is my first 5K in a year, the Race for Hope. I doubt I’ll hit it as fast as I did last year, but I feel good going in. 

Now I am just hoping this pumped up-ness lasts through my travel next week, it seems that is the thing that knocks me off kilter…getting off my routine because of travel. But I’ve scheduled a 10K race for the day after I return so I won’t have a chance to get lazy.

Now if I can just score myself a bike, I might start triathlon training.

    A bike and a pool.

    Well smartypants, I have access to a pool already, I just don’t have reason to use it.

    Shouldn’t you work your way up? Like do the BIatholon first? I can get you a sweet deal on a rifle….

    Biatholon. I think I saw a porn flick with that title.

    It’s weird no, that a biathlon is shooting and skiing (or shooting and porning according to you two) while a triathlon is swimming, biking and running? Why so different?

    It was invented out of whole cloth so that the winter olympics, aka the shitty olympics, could have something interesting besides hockey to watch.

    Now now.. Porning only results in shooting. They’re not the same thing.

    Biathalon – Run, Bike, Run or something like that.

    Meanwhile, swimming will increase your running abilities because your lung capacity will be tested extra and you’ll use muscles otherwise just sitting there, doing nothing.

    I think we talked about a Triathlon for ya previously. That all-girls tri in AUg or something?

    Meanwhile, when is this 5k race for hope and can I still sign up?

    email me the details?

    thanks!!
