Diet and blergh
- Aug 15th, 2017 at 6:17AM
I am not enjoying running and I have no idea why. It seems like every run is rough sledding, I feel like I am fighting myself, which is not a great feeling. My knee actually feels fine, but now I have a bunch of other niggly maladies, possibly from trying to run such that I avoided hurting the knee. But I really don't know what is going on, I expected to get back on track after a few bad runs, but each run just sucks. I spoke with a good friend who is a pretty serious runner and he thought that I may just be a bit mentally blown out with all the car stuff, which makes me feel like a complete doofus to be honest.
I didn't do the long run for the second straight week, which I don't love, but I feel like I have the endurance for a sub 1 hour 10k, and that was my goal. On the plus side, I have been pretty darned good on diet. It being summer I have definitely let a few beers sneak in here and there, but overarchingly I have been pretty on point. Over the last 5 days I have seen a significant ramp up in my personal effectiveness, I have been demolishing my daily to do lists, so that is very cool.
I hope everyone is doing great. Best of luck everyone!
