Staying Motivated…


I think I am still recovering from the weekend’s activity. I just cant seem to motivate myself to get to a level where I am comfortably reaching my training goals for each of my sessions. This morning’s run was short, but tough. I did hill training again, this seems to really drain me and I actally dont get to practice to run faster. Everything at this sage just seems to be slow. I dont seem to be improving, probably hit a plateau so I need to just stay focus and motivated. I suppose I am still fine. I am planning to run the Deloittes 10km run on the 26 February. I have looked at the profile and the first 10km is just hills. Just looking at the profile makes me tired :-(. All I can see at this stage is lots of walking…so what is the point! I will need to work on a strategy as this is going to be a tough race and I really want to work on getting in at 1:10…which means RUN MORE!

Distance: 3.3km
Time: 27min

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
