I am home from work, and glad that the work week has finally come to an end. This week has been so exhausting. I could go into a rant about that, but it wouldn’t do any good. Work is called "work" for a reason. Still, I am somewhat discouraged at not having accomplished much more than just get through my work days.
Running wise, I have only ran once since last weekend. Once home, any consideration to go for a run is pushed aside, either by responsibilities or lack of motivation. I can’t believe that it has come to the point where I need to force myself to run.
Running used to so much a part of me where everything that I did seemed to revolve around running. I would go stir-crazy if I went more than a day without running. Unfortunately, my days of running obsession appear to be behind me.
In my prior state, a case of the running blahs was easily fixed by registering for an "A race" that would still push me. I wonder if that would work for me now. I’ve spotted a local 25K that I know I would enjoy running – that is IF I train properly for it. It’s less than a month away. Here’s the dilemma: I’d hate to fork out the cash only to find out that I still can’t get up and running. On the other hand, I’d hate to train only to find out that the race filled up. Oh, what to do.
