I confess I lost my running mojo last week. Now that the intervals are essentially gone, I find it more difficult to get excited about going for a run. I am hoping that this is only a temporary mindset because it seems to fly in the face of what I should feel. I should be proud that I can run 2.5 miles without stopping and that should entice me to keep going. I am going to force myself to keep going and see if I can turn this negative attitude around to something more motivating.
I did find it interesting that I am severely impacted by weather and temperature when it comes to pain and ability to run. For example, I ran on New Year’s Eve in freak 60-degree weather and felt great. It was the fastest and farthest I’ve run in a while, and I felt wonderful after I finished with no leg pain at all. Sunday’s run was in temperatures that were 30 degrees colder, and I could barely run. My speed was off, and I did not run as far. The leg pain was pretty horrific as well. So, the weather needs to warm up, so that I can get to be a better runner!
I officially signed up for Weight Watchers online on Monday. It’s going to be a long journey, but I am excited to start losing weight.
