My training has had no focus of late, because, well, I have no need for a plan until the end of June. I am not handling this time without direction very well. Turns out, I thrive best on organized chaos, strict schedules, tight deadlines, and the like.
This is our second week of summer and with very little running or training of any sort to be had, I have accomplished almost nothing.
No closets have been organized, no shelves cleared. No drawers pillaged through. Not even a lazy day at the pool.
I guess this is what happens when coming off of several months of stress, the un-fun kind.
The beginning of this week found me feeling like I could not care less if I ever ran again. No matter how much sleep I would get, I was still tired. I bumped up the iron, slept when I wanted and then I noticed I started feeling better on Wednesday.
I met a friend for a bike ride which was cut short by a tremendous thunderstorm. Last night, I was ready to hit the pool, but another thunderstorm rolled in just as we were heading to the Y. I could have gone and jumped on the treadmill, but that was not appealing to my senses at all. I opted for an arm workout at home with the free weights and my 6 year old Boo was all in! He makes everything fun!
Today, I am feeling the need for a run. But if I don't get one, since there are no sitters here right now, then I suppose it will have to wait another day.
I need a jumpstart to get my mojo back. Not sure where it went or why it left. I did register for a few sprint tris and I have Cactus Rose to start getting ready for, but even those carrots are leaving me less than worried about missed workouts. Of course, no plan means no workouts are there to be missed.
What is YOUR favorite thing to do to get mojo back?
