My passion for running is back after a 5-6 week motivational slump.
I am all numbers, stats, and charts this morning.
I want to run as close to a 21 minute 5k as possible at the Rahr Oktoberfest 5k this September. We already signed up back in February.
I kept my motivation alive with the marathon training but the injury set me back so I set my goal to be at 10% body fat by my high school reunion but now I can't go so this gives me something out in the near distant future to strive for again.
Between the graduation parties and my five day weekend I lost 5 week of fat loss leaning out progress. Now it is time to cut out all the junk and focus on speed while I am running less than 6 miles a run for the next 15 weeks.
The Flash (comic book character) was struck by lightning which gave him the power of speed. Today I feel the spark of motivation I needed. The scale tipped above 170 for the first time in 6 weeks and I am NOT ok with that (unless it is from muscle gain of course).
