Running quote of the week

“I love track running. There’s something about that red 400-meter circle that lets my brain switch off—no roads to cross, no bikes to watch out for.” – Kate Carter

Running doldrums

Wednesday's run (street): 2.5 miles
Today's run (treadmill): 25 minutes

It's been a a tough week. I've done a couple of runs since Monday, but I haven't had time to post. I've had a lot of distractions lately, both in and out of the office. My motivation to run is definitely at a low point. The good news is that a lack of motivation has not affected my running schedule and I'm on track for a normal mileage week. I'm just not feeling it these days. I'll blame the hot weather and the numerous non-running related items that are taking up my time and attention.

Next Wednesday is our corporate 5K. It will be a new experience to race in the city. It will be fun to return to Riverside Park, where I occasionally ran when I first moved to NYC in the early '90's. The race starts at 6:00 PM. As an early morning runner, I expect to have some trouble hitting my stride so late in the day. But, perhaps, the excitement of this race will help get me out of my running doldrums. That would be great.
