OK, I admit it. I have been lying to myself. I am in a rut…or as many would say, “I have a big case of the blahs”. There was no running on Monday, no running on Tuesday, but I did manage to sneak out of bed early on Wednesday and squeeze in a 10k morning run. All that the morning run accomplished was to abate the feeling as Ellie has been having that I was slowly losing grip of the title “Runner” and becoming more and more a “couch potato”.
This morning, boy was I not ready to get up and go for a run. Unfortunately for me, when my alarm went off at 5:30am and my brain said “nope, not getting up” Mother Nature took things into her own hands and forced the issue. Once up, I gave up fighting, donned some running clothes and headed out the door. I struggled and shuffled out 10k, boy I hope Sunday’s LSD is a lot easier.
