The Black Hole of Training Motivation

Categories Blog

I am stuck right now. I am stuck in a black hole. I am just not sure how to begin my training plan AGAIN. I know, the old saying that you just need to tie your shoes and go. This is so much easier said than done. I am working a weird schedule right now as I prepare for a big move in my life over the next few months. I am working later nights some days and then morning shifts others. I am tired so much of the time. I am also rediscovering myself and not living in a high-stress world. I am trying to find a balance, but there does not seem to be one.

In my dream world, my alarm would go off and I would just get out of bed and go run. This is not happening. I don’t get out of bed in the morning and run the way that I should. In fact, I don’t get out bed and do anything other than drink coffee and have breakfast. I get online or play on my phone for a couple of hours, and then I get ready for work. This is my day. This is unacceptable.  So here is the question that I really need to figure out for myself. How do I get myself up and out the door? How do I get out of the black hole of training? I will keep you updated over the next few weeks as I figure this out. I know what I need to do. I really do, now just to figure out how to actually make it happen in my head. I need to stop making excuses and just get it done.
