Its been a long month. Once the time change occurs and it gets darker sooner, I am a complete mess. I lose a lot of motivation. Its hard to go out and run for a while and it is dark and cold. This happens to me every year. I work through it, but it takes time.
So far, I have only ran 9 days out of 16 so this month. That means I have missed 7 days!!! Out of those 7 days, I could have ran at least 5 of them. But I was feeling unmotivated. Its hard, when two days a week, I take my son to a class and then get home around 6:30. One night I go food shopping and Friday nights, I sometimes skip to have a nice evening with my wife. we can eat an early dinner and clean up and then have some time together.
With 14 days left this month, I do not have too many days left to skip if I want to make it to 20 days this month running. What are some of the tricks you use to keep yourself motivated?
