I really want to get back into running. After the marathon a few years back, I pretty much quit cold turkey. There were a few days here and there where I’d go out for a run, but overall, they were few and far between. The main motivation for this desire is as a cross-training technique to improve my horse stance endurance and because I know that I can run – or at least jog. Biking would be far better for my knees, but I can never generate any motivation for cycling.
The real challenge with running is finding the time to run. My favorite time is in the morning, but it’s also obviously the hardest time of the day to actually get up and do it. Sleep always seems to find a way to convince me to stay in bed for just a few more precious minutes. Sadly, I don’t think any other time is realistic. After work? forget it. I could do late night, but then I’d get myself all worked up before bed.
I guess I’ll keep setting my alarm clock to go off early, and hope that one of these days I get up and start the routine.
