The family at the Color in Motion Run at Qualcomm Stadium
My question, though, is on these weeks when I run lightly am I lacking motivation i.e. being lazy or is it a good natural break for my body? I do stress out when I go more than 2 days without a run and I worry I will slack more and more if I don't get out there whenever I have the chance. I know many serious runners (am I a serious runner??) run 5-6 times per week. I find I get resentful of the run if I do more than 4 a week. I feel like it is work then. But I do want to improve and when the time comes to really step it up for the Marathon, which I am thinking will be about 6 months prior to the race, I will probably have to run more often. Will I be able to do this?
