Days 22 and 23: My humps.

I have lost that bloggy feeling of late.  Over the past several days I have felt the need to pull inward, to regroup, to nest if you will.  Perhaps I have been around too many people and it is catching up to me.  That happens some times.  I start to feel drained and then I need to hunker down and recharge my mental batteries.  I also feel as though I am about to get over a hump in my training.  On one side is cutting back, slowing down, maybe even giving up.  On the other side is doing more, getting faster, a successful marathon.  I feel as though I could go either way, and the decisive factor in all of that is me.  So I need to gird my loins (?), gather my strength, stay away from shiny things, and take the step that I want to take.  (That would be on the not quitting side of things, in case you were wondering.) 

All of this has left me feeling less than creative and in danger of falling into a funk if I write here simply to write here.  Because I know it will all end up blue and sad and whiny.  And I don't want to do that.   It's boring.  So, until I get my whimsy back I may be a bit sporadic.  Never fret; I feel as though this transition will be coming very soon.  This weekend I'll spend some time with my friend S, plus on Friday I get to go do the best part about running:  spend time with running pals drinking beer.  Yay!

Anyone else feeling a bit off lately?  Maybe Mercury is in retrograde or something.

  1. Hope you rise up out of the doldrums soon. Maybe it's simply a case of the winter blah's. Spring is right around the corner...

  2. I felt really off yesterday and a little today. I am blogging instead of going for my run!!! I hope you get the feeling back soon :-)

  3. Hope you get out of the slump soon. It's been a rough couple of weeks for me too.

    PS I had to do some research on tax law today and I totally thought of you and the convo we had at breakfast. I wanted to DIE

  4. Thanks everyone! I think the weather may have something to do with it; when I'd like to be at home snuggled up with my pups I'm out running. Oh well, I am trying to focus on the fact that this training has a finite end and that I can adjust my life in order to gain better health.
