I think I'm entering the mid-training-season doldrums. I know my legs can do the mileage, but gosh, it's tough getting the motivation to get out the door for these long runs.

I say this as I sit here trying to motivate to go run 14 miles. Next week, 16 miles; and the week after that, even more miles. I'm tired just thinking about it.

I love the payoff of marathon Sunday - it's more fun than you can possibly imagine - but DANG, I really hate the training. I say this every year (and anyone who knows me has heard me say it a thousand times), but I'm sticking to half-marathons for a while after I get through this year's marathon.
