The Snow Took My Mojo

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I was in Miami? Yeah, me too. I want to be back there — now.

Where I live in New York, we got hit with just about a foot of snow. It was predicted to be worse so I guess I’ll take it. I was supposed to run 10 miles today but I will be nice and let people clear their sidewalks first. So tomorrow I will head out wearing my trail shoes and my YakTrax because that’s what life is like when it snows this much in Westchester County.

My running has just about been nonexistent since I got back from Miami. It has been cold and my motivation is still down south. I went running last weekend, another snowy day and I’m hoping my somewhat enjoyment of running in the snow will get me out the door tomorrow.

I’ve got a half marathon on February 24 but I really don’t have any goals attached to that and that is exactly how I want it. This race is more or less a way to keep me moving and running so that I won’t be a complete slug for the NYC Half Marathon in March.

I would like to find my motivation soon and get back to my routine of getting in the morning and running before work because I really do feel better when I do that. I’m just having just a hard time forcing myself out the door. But it is the weekend and another new week is upon us. Perfect for a fresh start.

What do you do to get yourself motivated after a running slump?
