Long Run Saturday and Motivation

Precor Treadmills at South Shore Athletic ClubI just don’t have my running mojo this week.  Where did it go?  Maybe if I went out on my long run, I would find it.  But I have no motivation to go.  A classic Catch-22.

I thought about heading to the gym and shooting for 10 miles.  Hopefully the spirit of  a couple of weeks ago would strike, when I did the 9 miles on the treadmill.  But it may be too easy to quit early at the gym.

The cookie dough from last night is in the fridge.  Would it be better to test a couple of cookies before my run?  Or use it as motivation for when I get back?

I have a couple of errands to run today and then dinner with good friends later.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
