you get what you put in.
Isn't that so true?
Truth is, I haven't put much into it lately. My energy level is low, probably because my eating has been crappy. Its been tough giving it my all in my workouts, because my energy level is low. My head is not in the game, and I need to get it there. That explains my absence from blogging and blog reading as well.
My goal for the week is to get back on track with everything.
positive energy.

What motivates you out of a slump?

Week 8 Marathon Training Recap
Monday- easy 30 minutes on the elliptical and stretching
Tuesday- speedwork run. I managed all the intervals sucessfully, without any cheats.
Wednesday- TRX class
Thursday- only made 2.25 of my 6 mile tempo run. Totally not feeling it.
Friday- Skipped my TRX class. exhausted, but unable to sleep well.
Saturday- 3 mile run/walk with my triathlon friend Barbie and her 3 month old girl. It was nice to catch up and meet the baby!
Sunday- 15 miles at 12:30ish pace. my knee was achy, and my energy just wasn't there. This was a rough run for me. I sent Shelley ahead of me for the last 3ish miles, and met her at the end. 

Send me some good vibes!

hopefully you find your motivation soon! What motivates me - good running quotes (especially on pinterest), reading about a kick-booty race from someone else, and just blogging about lackluster runs. One quote that usually gets me motivated is: "no one said it was going to be easy, they just promised it would be worth it". It changes my mindset when I feel like being lazy and I remember how going out and going after my goals will be worth it in the end.

Hang in there! Remember: even if you have had a tough time 'giving it your all', you're still getting out there and doing it. Sometimes changing my music really helps me get out of a rut!
