I haven’t been talking about my running much lately… That’s because there hasn’t been much of it, and the runs I have gone on certainly haven’t been note worthy.
I have nothing to blame, really. I’m not injured. I haven’t been sick (though I feel like crud all the time recently, but that’s unrelated I think) I just haven’t made the time. I admit it.. I have let life get in the way. Which, is fine – but I do have a 10k coming up that I had some pretty high hopes for….
I know that I’m not burnt out. That’s not the problem. I still LOVE running and I can tell that a lot of the reason I’ve been feeling so “meh” in my brain is that I’m not running more… I’m just in some sort of funk. I need to shake myself out of it. I’m the ONLY one to blame.
The past couple of weeks I keep wanting to sign up for a 5k, because I think a race will help this, a race that doesn’t matter (goal wise) but will get my blood pumping with adrenaline. Unfortunately for one reason or another I haven’t been able to. Either too pricy, far away, conflicting times with work. Booooo.
So I am super stoked it’s Warrior Dash weekend. I 150% believe this will help LOADS! Getting muddy with some awesome people while running & doing absurd obstacles?! heck yes. I am so excited. Call the mud runs what you will – I think they’re awesome. We should always take time to have FUN with the sports we love!
I have absolutely no time goals for Warrior Dash. I just want to be the muddiest person in my wave. Or at least the muddiest person I see near the finish? haha
Of course, I made the excuse that I don’t want a farmers tan from any of the t-shirts I don’t mind getting muddy and that I “don’t want to get my racerbacks too muddy” (aka I just want to go buy something cute for warrior dash. here’s a list of excuses that aren’t real but sound nice) and picked up a cute outfit for Sunday.
A very Charlotte-esque outfit. Though I have to admit I don’t know what to put on my feet. I am not that girl who owns 10 thousand pair of running shoes. But I think I’ll just wear my white/sea foam green connects since they need to be retired within the next couple of months anyhow.
Anywho — what fun things do y’all have planned this weekend?
Have you ever been in a funk with your running or fitness? What helped you get out of it?
