Going Through the Motions

November 26th, 2010

These last couple of weeks I do feel a bit like I’ve just been going through the motions. I’ve been busy, tired, and feeling rather run down. On Wednesday, I got home feeling tired and run down and really not wanting to go for a run. And it was bloody cold outside.

Maybe I could go tomorrow?” I thought.

Then I remembered that that’s what I’d said on Tuesday, too. So, summoning what little motivation I had, I got myself out and ran a boring 5K down the Portway.

Because, sometimes, going through the motions is a better option than just not going through the motions.

    \o/ Keep it up! There seems to be a fine line between not doing something because you really need a break, and not doing it because your motivation just isn’t there. (I took Friday night and yesterday off from my to‐do lists, mostly, and have the will to get things done back today. So you do need to let it go sometimes…)
