Not feeling like a Runner Lately..

I can't believe it's been more than two months since I have updated this thing. Life has just been busy, and maybe a little boring too, I haven't had all that much new to update about.

Workouts have been the same really, nothing new to report. I am sort of at a standstill with my running, I have not done anything big lately, just doing the same ole. I go to the gym 5-6 days a week, and I run on average, 6-8 miles each time.

Summer is really starting here in FL, so my weekly outdoor run will probably not be happening for a while. I may be able to squeeze in a few more before it gets too hot, but typically I don't run outdoors in the summer, even the mornings can be too warm and humid for me. Thank goodness for the gym!

I will try to keep up with this blog more often now, maybe I'll start to have some exciting stuff to write about, who knows! No races on the horizon for me, I was toying with the idea of doing a 15K at Disney next month, but talked myself out of spending the $50, I am just not wanting to spend big money on races right now. I have not done a race since my Half back in December.

On to the reason why I'm not feeling like a runner lately. I had joined a message board over at Runner's World, and I made my way over to a women's section that mainly has moms on it. I am floored at the workouts these ladies do, it's amazing! It makes my daily 6 mile runs feel like nothing. Most of them have done marathons, a couple of them even ran Boston yesterday. I find it amazing, I think part of me wishes I had the desire to do a marathon, but I just don't. I loved the half, and will do another one, but at this point in my life, the desire to train for a full just isn't there.

Maybe it's time to take that "Runner" license plate frame off my car, I just don't feel like a runner lately, makes no sense really, since I still run almost every day!
