… but my running mojo hasn’t returned yet. It is probably on a non-stop party with another runner and obviously very happy!
Today I got woken up by bright sunshine! That and a sleepy voice whispering “cocoa…cocoa, mommy” and little feet trying to push me out of the bed.
I could have went for a (quick) early run, but I didn’t. Instead I did one hour of kettle bell, a tiny bit yoga and stretching and even then I really had to kick my own behind!
A week or so ago, I even posted on hardmoors Facebook site for advice what runners did when they experienced something similar.
I got plenty of answers and advice like
- leave gadgets at home
- go for shorter runs
- relax for a week
- do other things
As for the gadgets, I am not a big fan anyway and only take my watch if I run a new route to see how far it is and how long it takes and I did all the rest but still…
I honestly think, it is a head thing and I start to think about giving my hardmoors 60 place up.
Not because I won’t make it to the finish line. I probably would… with a little cry here and there… aching all over (because I didn’t exercise properly) and crawling the last bit…
But right now all I want to do is being lazy! Which frightens me a bit because that is so not me! I am not a lazy person! I love to be busy the whole day. I wouldn’t admit it all loud and yes I get impatient the longer the day but only a busy day is a good day!
Or at least so it was until now.
It is (finally) nice weather, my two older children are back from their holiday so I technically could go for a run whenever I please, but why is my head not in it???
Maybe I am just not so happy at the moment and the impact is so massive , that I can’t be bothered with anything, not even change something.
That is sad, I know.
Well, maybe tomorrow is a better day. The light at the end of the tunnel is still on…
