That I don’t feel like running at all feeling!

Ever get the feeling like you want nothing to do with going out for your next run? Putting it off, avoiding chances where you could run, putting it off for another time instead doing more “important” things? Well I’ve got that feeling now and it sucks! It really sucks! Especially when I have some of my best friends running a really cool really difficult running challenge. The Dopey Challenge. This time of year usually inspires me to run and I’m still not craving it! You’d think I’d be all over it right now especially since my goal is to complete that challenge next year! Right now I’m chalking it up to not getting enough sleep this week after working 5 straight days of 12 hour shifts with 430am wake ups . I will see how this goes and try to get some more rest and see if that helps. I also have some runs planned with the love of my life this week and I am looking forward to that. So we’ll see how it goes. If you’re wondering, though,  I did force myself to run 5k tonight cause I know I have to so I will not lose anything I’ve gained. Run went well and was a good workout really but hasn’t changed my mindset but I still have my mental game on that says “you must keep running”.  For now I am off to bed to catch up on some much needed sleep!

But I want to have a little in comfort in  numbers.  What about you?  Have you ever had that feeling?  How do you battle those anti-running demons?

🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑Well after a little more than 10 months it's time for this little birdie to leave the nest and fly on his own!  It's been a long process with many ups and downs. 🙏❤️huge thanks to my wife who was still recovering from major surgery and was basically a single mom right up to Christmas while I was attending the in-class portion. She encouraged me, supported me and kept everything at home and with the kids running smoothly. Then during my clinical and preceptorship phase we had to deal with the illness and eventual passing of her father. There were many times where I needed to be with her to support her and I couldn't :(. @karenvanmil, you are amazing, supportive, strong and I couldn't have done it without you! ❤️544
🙏 thank you @edwonian for precepting me.  We had some fun times, frustrating times where I felt like I made a mistake and could do this and times of immense learning and growth.  You broke it down, kept on me to improve and gave me strategies constantly self reflect and always find ways to be better and find improved ways to treat my patients. I wouldn't be where I am today with your wisdom patience and experience; thank you!!! 🙏thank you @i_carter78 I had the pleasure of learn long a ton with you as your partner over all these years that helped me to enter this program. Then I was lucky enough to return to your for my consolidation.  I hope I can be half the medic you are. I have learned a ton with you these last few months and you pushed me from "I think" to "I know". We've become great friends over these years and I hope for that to continue even though I may be moving to a different platoon. Thank also for all the  help and work you put in on the sidelines for me this past year! First off thank you everyone for the support, words of encouragement and donations!  I was honestly worried about this race because of my lack of training but it was, surprisingly, much better than I thought! I ran it on intervals of 11:1 and tried to maintain a 9:30 min/mile and I met my goal of under 1hr30mins! Already looking forward to next year!

@oakley My #flatrunner for tomorrow's @raceforkidsto 15k. Thanks again to all those that donated so far!  There's still time to donate as well!  Check out my profile for the link!  You'd be helping a ton of kids get hooked up with the resources they need! 🏃Race kit days are fun!🏃 :) @raceforkidsto may be tomorrow morning but there's still time to make a donation and help some kids!  The link is in my profile! :) This has not been a great year for me to get out and get runs logged. I forced myself to get out tonight after two long days at work with shift overrun overtime. Mentally I think I needed it. I also have the @raceforkidsto 15k coming up this weekend and I wanted to get a handle of where I was at. While I am not happy with my level of training and fitness I know I'll be able to complete this race. This race is important to me and I run it every year because of the great things it does for our youth!  The program your donations support assists youth to navigate the very complicated mental health system. Youth suffering with mental health problems is something I see at work frequently and, unfortunately, more and more every shift. Your donations go a long way to helping these kids. Huge thank you to those of you who have donated already!  If you would like to make a donation in my name the link is in my IG profile. The @raceforkidsto is now officially sold out! There is still tons of time to donate and help some kids though!
