Training for 5km Colour Run

I wanted to do the Colour Run last year, but didn't get to. I have made it a goal to run a marathon and started training. Then some things in my personal life knocked me for a six. Yesterday I got back into it. The results were not pretty.

I ran less than I was running about 3 months ago. I got nauseous and ended up dropping to the ground at a park.

Pathetic! A seriously pathetic effort.

I have been extremely lazy though. We haven't even been walking to school and we live within 1km of it!

This morning I got my kids up early enough for us to walk. They weren't thrilled, but we need to stop being so lazy!

I've found a few places I can work out with them and have ordered some equipment to use in my house. When I am determined and working towards a goal I am good.

Knowing that about myself, I registered for The Colour Run. It forces me to train because I am doing a public run and I don't want to embarrass myself. A month after the run I am speaking on a cruise. A CRUISE!! I want to look good in a swimsuit.

I have the reasons to work out now and am determined to not look as pathetic as the photo above again.

How do you work out or motivate yourself to work out?
