People have asked me - where do I get the constant motivation to run or train. The truth is, it's not always easy to just lace up and run. With no races in mind, there is less motivation to run.

7am alarm rings. *snooze
8am alarm rings. *snooze

B.T: are we running?
A: It's too hot
B.T draws the black-out curtains : Woa it's HOT out there.
A: Let's run in the evening instead *turns back to sleep.
*stands and ponder
B.T: You are one of the 7 deadly sins. Sloth. Such a bad influence on me. I used to be able to run regardless of the weather.
A: YOU are such a bad influence on me. I used to be able to wake up and run early in the morning. Now I only want to sleep in.
B.T: I'm going to run. Sloth.
A: Goddammit. Ok. Fine. I'll run now.

We took another 20 minutes, dragging our feet around and taking our time to brush our teeth and wash our faces. We finally head out.

Then it's funny how you suddenly wake up and feel all pumped up to go. He was quite impressed that I was running pretty fast throughout. I suppose 9min/mile is one of my better paces so far. We could have gone on for at least 10km or so but had to turn around and head home so that we'll be on time for our next appointment.

So it's not always that easy. But we try.
