It’s a “funk” when I haven’t blogged in over 2 weeks…….nor have I really been commenting on anyone else’s blogs……probably because I haven’t even felt like reading about all the fun they’re having when I'm not joining in......
I think it’s an official “funk”, seeing as I’ve only run twice in the 2 weeks since the marathon.
I had planned to take a week off after the marathon to allow myself to recover from the effort. When I started running again at the beginning of last week, I felt pretty good, but I found my overall energy level lacking. It was about all I could do to get through my teaching days and then collapse when I got home.
Not exactly the kind of recovery I had planned....
So now what? I think it’s time to take it back to the start again……just lace ‘em up and go. No plans…..no expectations…….no goals. That’s going to be hard for me to do, but I think it’s the only way I can get back at it again. The time for planning will come again, as soon as I start to decide on the next series of races, but for now I just need to get my ass moving again.
Maybe I’ll buy myself some new shoes as a reward/motivator?
The bottom line? The pity party is over…….it’s time to get running again!
Rock on, my friends……see you all out there down the road!
