With the days getting shorter and the nights getting colder, I have a harder and harder time getting off the sofa. Especially now that there are not many races to look forward to in the near future, it's espeically hard to stick with it. So the question of the day is:
What keeps you motivated?
For me, I think about how good it will feel afterwards. Sometimes, I put my gym bag in the car and go straight to my workout after lab. Whatever I do, I don't go home. It's just too tempting to collapse and do nothing. Also, if I have a favorite tv show to watch, I exercise while watching it. It's great multitasking. I also like to make new music playlists to listen to while running. In addition, there are a lot of little road races in the off-season. These keep me honest and give me something to look forward to. Some nights, however, I just have some Ghirardelli dark chocolate and collapse on the couch while watching Survivor.
