There’s nothing like a race to motivate you to run

I don’t know about you but I am not motivated to run all that much unless I have a race in the calendar. As much as I love running,  sometimes especially when it is cold I need a reason to get up out of my comfortable bed in the cold, pull on my running gear and venture out knowing my husband is lying in our comfortable bed having a lie in!

I got up at 5am this morning and met running buddies in Ipswich which is a fair drive from me, but there was a reason – The Park2Park race which is at the end of the month.  I’m doing the 5k – It’s a tough one with a number of challenging hills but I know someone running it and thought I’d give it a go, and each Sunday between now and then we’re running the route to get a feeling for it and to improve times over the course.

So I have a reason to run now.

After the Park2Park I am intending to do one of the Brisbane Road Runners 5k’s in August and we’ll see what happens from there.

My new 5k training program starts tomorrow, so I am back and motivated, ready to train hard.
