Hey -- I ~totally~ hear you re being unmotivated. Running is my "least favorite" part of triathlon training so this year, I decided to sign up for a marathon -- to "have to" pay attention to running, training for running, etc. One thing that works for me is to get an unabridged book on tape from the library. I tell myself I can only listen to it, if I am running. I get spy novels, mysteries, heck, anything that is kinda "cliff-hanger-y" (unabridged is better b/c you get the "whole story" -- and they are free at the library). Anyway -- I live in the country and I run on trails/backroads (and on a treadmill when, like today, it's pouring). I wouldn't do this of course if I was running and needed to "keep my wits about me" -- but I can't tell you what a motivator this has been. The other thing that I'll do (if I haven't made it back to the library to 'refresh' my 'running book') is that I'll run to a tape that has Marine Corps "cadence calls" ("jodies"). I am not a fast runner -- these are 10 mins/mile and that's a perfect pace for me for hill work. I was in the USMC and so I can zone out and just have my feet hit the ground and suddenly it's 1/2 hour later. They are available from amazon.com if this is something that also might work for you. Again -- never smart if you have to "keep your wits about you" when running -- but this motivates me. Good luck -- glad to see that it's "not just me"
