I upped my run time yesterday, so I'm finally running for a full half hour. I do a two minute warm up, run for half an hour, then a five minute cool down. I had to drop my run speed down a bit, but not by too much. I'll spend the next couple of weeks working on getting my run speed back up at this time.

One huge motivational boost I got this morning was realizing I'm loosing weight again! I havn't lost all the weight I regained during my last "bounce", but I'm moving in a positive (negative?) direction once again.

Since it's a perennial issue for me, and I believe many other people, I've compiled a short list of links regarding motivation:

great links!

blogs actually motivate me a lot. reading about someone that didnt want to twork out but did it anyway makes it that much harder for me to rationalize skipping a workout
