Do you feel like once a week, I'm posting about how I'm in a funk... either alcohol-induced, flu or sinus-induced, slow and/or lazy induced funk? And then every Monday I declare that it's a new start?
Yeah, it doesn't just feel like that.. it's become the general theme of my posts lately.
Granted, I have been busy. But, honestly... I'm usually busy, that's not really a valid excuse. I've been doing this running thing long enough to know that something's off. And I just keep thinking that it's a short-lived, just this week funk. But, then it comes back the next week.. and I make up some other kind of excuse for it.
What is the deal?
If I'm being completely honest... I've been in this funk since I became a maniac. Did I overtrain last summer and burn out? I LOVED last summer though. I LOVED that I was in the routine, that I was dedicated enough to run 60+ miles a week. And it seems like I'm always trying to get myself back to that.
I thought signing up for a 50k would kick my ass in gear... but, it didn't really. I just ran a couple of marathons as training runs and then kinda pussyfooted around the rest of the time.
I need a new spark.
Maybe I'm not running enough races. Maybe I need to sign up for something big. Suggestions?
