I've been exhausted and I'm sure it's been affecting us both, as I think is clearly indicated in yesterday's post. I've lost my focus on running due to two weeks of my sinuses exploding on a regular basis and all but lost my motivation to work out at all. I need to get my groove back and I know it's a matter of doing, not
My Valentine's spin class was great - the usual hills and intervals with some new beats to mix things up - and was a much a kick in the rear for myself as it was for my class. Granted, I could conserve some energy and maybe attempt multiple classes in a day, but should no other opportunity arise for me to instruct another group, I know I need to make my Tuesday nights count. This week's class really helped me get out of a funk and set the tone for the rest of this week's workouts.
Today was my usual 6-mile tempo run with hills and intervals. I never do an easy run indoors; it seems like cheating. Plus, with this trail race being just nine days away, I feel inclined to make every workout count until it's time to rest up for a couple days before the event.
Tomorrow it's weights or yoga following work. Training in a new restaurant is a lot like going back to being a fly on the wall, so I don't anticipate expending too much energy there. I was stiff from work on Wednesday because of how much standing around I did.
This weekend I HAVE to do 10 miles. It's purely mental. Like, if I can hit the trails and do 10 miles now I can do 13 in a week. I mean, who really tapers for a half-marathon, anyway? Right? That's something those "normal" people do.
What's your go-to workout to get out of a funk?
