I did exactly half of my scheduled 3 mile run today. Sigh. On a normal day, I can run a mile or mile and a half before it starts to feel “hard”, but today I had to fight right from the beginning. Nothing hurt (though my guts seem to be mildly unhappy) but I just had no energy and dragged.
I get the feeling that this year’s 5k is going to feel sort of like when I finished my master’s degree– I spent so long working my tail off and building up to it that, after I had defended and turned in my thesis, I didn’t want to do anything at all for a month or two. After next Friday, I wonder if I’m going to feel like running much? It’s going to be very hard to motivate myself.
This lingering malaise and lack of energy is all through my life– work, gym, home. I keep thinking about taking a vacation to give myself a break, but there’s nothing I feel like doing, really. Meh. I hope my enthusiasm comes back soon.
