It’s your responsibility to cultivate and harvest motivation


What keeps you motivated is your responsibility to discover, manage, nurture, grow, exploit, and have fun with.

Since retiring four months ago, am only running three days a week, but for much longer distances. A fluke that just happened without any desire or intention. Have run the longest distances in 55 years. Runs of 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7 miles. Anything less than 7 feels like cheating.

But yesterday was different. Only five miles. Three miles easy warm up, one mile time trial, one mile cool down.

Aimed for a six-minute mile. Came in at 6:04.

Very motivating.
