Turns out it's a good thing that that race was on during my workout -- I definitely needed some motivation to get the run done since I'd been ill yesterday, and seeing this happen helped a lot:
Source: APNothing like a bunch of huge Scandinavians cross-country skiing over 31 miles to make me think, "You know, 5 miles isn't so bad...I think I can do that..." My other alternative was Fareed Zakaria interviewing George Soros on CNN -- call me crazy, but that's not motivating. At least not for running.
Now I'm watching the hockey game -- go USA! Though really, I think it'd be pretty cool if Canada won. I mean, it is their national sport, after all. Wouldn't the U.S. be angry if Canada beat us at baseball or football? Yes. So either way I'll be happy with who wins.
What's your workout plan today?
