I am legitimately unsure how this week off happened. I ran last Monday and it felt good and I enjoyed it, and then I had a bunch of work days where I was at the office late, but there was also that one day where I got done with work at 2, and I drove home on Friday thinking I couldn't wait to run, but then the world was going to end the next day so I just ate pizza instead, and then it was hot on the weekend, and UGH. I got up early and went before work Monday, but I sort of keep forgetting about that because it was FOREVER ago and it was before 8 am so it basically doesn't count. I planned to take yesterday off. I also planned to run again this morning, which didn't happen. I want to do 5 miles today, but am already doubting my ability to do so. I don't know why. Just doubting. I'm all in my head. It's annoying.
I have tried many things to undo this pattern. I registered for two more races, a 10K in two and a half weeks and a half-marathon in July. I bought new running shorts and a tank top, both of which are cute. And still! I remain bleh! I know this will go away eventually but I don't feel like I can wait around for it to magically get better. I get more frustrated and stressed the more I put off running, which makes me more incapable of running, which makes me more stressed and frustrated, it is a big annoying cycle of whine and stupid. I know the cure is to just shut up and go run, which is basically my plan, but you guys it's RAINING and kind of COLD and I am WHINY and WHAT DO I DOOOOOO.
So any advice you have is welcome. Otherwise I will just be over here beating myself up and watching the countdown to the 10K get smaller and smaller.
BLAAARGH! Also in less annoying news, this lady is having a giveaway, go over and enter immediately! And also comment on her cute wedding pictures. Happy anniversary Carrie! :)
