This post will be short, sweet & to the point.
It’s no secret that I’ve been in a major slump the last couple of weeks, both training & diet wise… leading me to not want to blog as much either. Total lack of energy and motivation left me feeling pretty bad about myself. I knew what I needed to be doing but I just wasn’t doing it. Why? I’m not exactly sure. Looking back, I probably could have sucked it up to get my runs in but I just didn’t want to. Call it what you want… lazy, burnt out? I don’t know. I do know that I’m happy to say I’m slowly but surely getting back on track.
Chicago is only 7 weeks out now. Can you believe that? 7 weeks! I’m 100% freaking out because I’m nowhere near where I need to be. I’ve re-evaluated my goals again -> I just want to finish, whatever the time may be. I need to let go and be at peace with this decision because I know it’s the right one, but I’m still (really) disappointed in myself. Oh well. My main focus now is on Philly, with Chicago being a (really) long, slow training run.
With that said, I’m probably going to cut back on my blog posts for the next few weeks so I can focus my attention on continuing getting back on track and on other areas of my life. My goal when I first started blogging (I have to laugh at this phrase because in reality it was only 2 months ago) was to get a post out every day. I’m not going to be trying so hard to do this. If it happens, great! If not, I’m not worrying about it. There’s a lot on my plate right now. Between marathon training, starting BBG again, work heading into our busy season, co-chairing the United Way campaign, figuring out my diet & what works best for me, side projects that have been lacking my full attention so they aren’t getting done, and so many other things… it’s just too much! I’m not complaining at all though! I love my life! I’m just letting you know why you may not see as frequent of posts in the coming weeks. I’m thinking that after I run Chicago things will be a bit better & I’ll be back at it!
