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?
