June 28 – Something You Want To Break
aka. Post 28 of Those 30 Posts in June Blog-Every-Day Posts
We ran hills tonight, and after just four slogs up that mound I’m completely wiped… fried… broken. That should definitely not be the case.
I’m going to blame work. Yeah, work. We’re a few hands short at the office and that means picking up slack. I know I’m not supposed to let writing about the office creep into this blog, but the office itself has crept into my private life in ways that I’m physically feeling. I’m tired. Burned close to the bottom of the wick. And it’s showing, especially in my feet-based pursuits.
June was supposed to be the grand kick-off to my November marathon effort, but I almost feel like I’m in worse shape at the end of this month than I was at the beginning.
I’m eating like crap, too, which doesn’t help. But again… that’s work creating stress creating cravings creating a willpower void. Grrr…
But I’m also not getting out on the trails as often as I should, and when I do the distances seem shorter, slower, less momentous… even despite cranking up the duration of my long runs on the weekends.
I need to break out of this rut. July?
