Where has my motivation gone?

I can jump around in a studio teaching all day, which is pretty much what I have been doing throughout the Summer so far, but my training has gone out the window.

One day I want to be able to do the half Iron Man, but as I haven't ran for about 3 weeks haven't swam in 2 the future is looking bleak. I just cannot be bothered!

How do you keep yourselves motivated? I need some inspiration (and a kick up the back side) Please help!

@Kirstyb... LOL!

Personally, sounds like it's time to switch it up! Or time to listen to your body when it says "Give me a break!"

For me, the times that I'd rather have a root canal than get my sweat on are the times that I really just need a break. It could be that I'm just over stressed or over trained or under fed or all the above... but sometimes the best thing you can do for your mind and body is to just take a break - be it a day, a week or a month.

Then slowly work your way back into it with stuff you like: biking, swimming, throwing around serious weight in the gym. Or find something new - Crossfit is my personal fave, or a class or learn a new sport. Sign up for a race... any thing that makes those butterflies in your tummy start to fly around and make you smile. :)

Your definitely right about the I gave myself one yesterday :) Just a day! I tend to go with the Les Mills mantra 'When your body screams...tell it to shut up!'

I keep seeing things about Crossfit on blogs, I shall google it to find out more!

As I live in Loughborough term time it is easier for me to keep up with things such as running gym etc, but whilst Im at home in Eastbourne I have way more distractions and just live in studio classes...not that I don't love that mind you! I think your right, i'm just tired! Not to worry, Im going on holiday in a week and a half! yay!
