    There are still times when I hate running. I had a crap run today- currently have a cold, it was raining outside and cold and I did my most boring run that I have done 100's of times TWICE. But I have a feeling tomorrows run will be awesome. I don't even know what motivates me anymore- I know that there are health benefits and that I have a marathon coming up (which should be a huge motivator) but I just run because I feel like running.

    I am a cyclist, but I do a bit of running as well. Tomorrow, I have a bit of duathlon training.

    I will have to cycle 10km of up/down (easy-ish sort of gradient), then 2.5km of uphill (15% gradient)/back down x 2, then 5km of up/down (easy-ish sort of gradient), and 400m of uphill (18% gradient)/back down x 3. I will then have to run up/down the same 400m hill 3 times. And finish off with a 10km up/down (easy-ish sort of gradient) cycle. All of this... In less than an hour, in race conditions. I was second to finish last week, aiming for first.

    The best training comes from running from the police. Try committing a crime in the bad part of town in front of the police the next time you do not fill like running. It will give you an adrenaline rush.

    We had a very good summer here in Western Europe. I didn't do a lot of running lately so I'm stuck at running 30 mins in one stretch at best. The weather here is cooling down since the beginning of this week which I prefer for running. The next goal is to be able to run 1hr without interuption.

    How are you guys doing at the moment?
