On motivation

I think i was born with motivation in the pocket. Just the idea that i can better my best is enough inspiration to get my ass out and do something. the same applies to my other hobbies like reading. this is not to say i don’t get distracted, i do. i have found myself being an occasional couch potato, though never for long. but while i can give advise on weight loss, i can’t on motivation. maybe i should get a marketing department to help with this.

all this was just to tell you about my morning run. i must have mentioned that i had a goal of doing the half in 1:40 but quit that training plan a week ago after putting in 8 weeks of regular training. i guessed i need to run much slower for the time being, build a low aerobic base and spruce it up occasionally. we will see how that goes. for now i am in competition with a camel in drinking water. we will see who wins. the camel or myself

I am happy with this run.

    I wish some of that motivation could be transferable.
    Keep doing this until you can do no more. And then start over again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The important aspect is that YOU are getting out there and doing all this for a healthier YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep up the good work and be patient – you’ll soon accomplish your goals! Naked hugs, my Kenyan brother! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Awesome meme…and awesome run, Maka.
    I think Nairobi is on Google Street View, so I am off to check it out!!!

    I think there is a degree of…addiction…to an exercise regime. I am not nearly, nearly as obsessed with weight lifting as I am cycling, but I was a little bit…depressed…when I could not go to the gym. And no, I could not replace it with push-ups, as the inner toobs told us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now the local gym has weights in a windy outdoor area, so all is good, especially as things are no longer locked down so tightly.

      I think it could be because I never went to a good gym so I didn’t catch on strength training. Maybe I should try it, I may just run faster. Or cycle better.

    I’m always motivated. The problem is what I’m motivated to do on one day is unlikely to occur again. Ever.
