I seem to like to ramble in the middle of the week. 34 days into the year and I am in a funk.
Minus the 6 day sick streak in January, I have been hitting the workouts I set for myself each week. January was a solid start to regaining my base. I started cross training more often, you could even call it consistent now. 🙂 Then this week. I have yet to run this week. I just can’t seem to get motivated.
Maybe it’s taper crazies? Not that I really needed to taper but I have had some phantoms pains too. Maybe it’s that the last week or so of runs have been ugly and rough. I am not expecting them to be all sunshine and daisies but an 11:00 minute pace was kicking my ass last Sunday. That doesn’t bode well for Sunday’s race.
Maybe it’s that work has been all Mondays for the last week? Which is odd because even though we are running short handed, our crew is small but mighty. However, I feel like I am forgetting some huge important detail. I hate that feeling. Maybe it will come to me during the race on Sunday. 🙂
I need to snap out of this. I started this post on Tuesday night but deleted it- it sounded way too whiny and pissy. But some venting does help. And there is #shiny still. Like I said, the crew at work right now is awesome. I have a fun weekend planned with 20,000 other crazies like me. Besides the race festivities on Saturday and Sunday, I have some other fun things in the works for this weekend that I am looking forward to sharing with you.
So tell me- is it taper crazies or am I just cranky?
