It took me exactly one week to get my bum moving again after the Girlfriends Half Marathon. I was pleased with my finish of 2hr7min. and beat my time from last year. I had the usual high afterwards and then the usual low a week later. I've been running for about 17 months now and completed 6 races. It's come to my attention this lack of motivation is becoming a normal thing for me after each race. I'm hoping it's a normal occurrence for others too. My next race isn't until next year but wonder if having one planned every month would be a good idea. Maybe a good motivator to keep on running. Or, is having all these races giving me anxiety? Not sure. Thank goodness Wendy and I ran today. A perfect sunny day to pass an hour away. It was a tough run and knew when I started I was going to struggle. It's funny, I can judge how the run is going to be by the first mile. I think because Wendy runs faster than me, I was struggling from the start with my lack of oxygen. By the end I was using one syllable words. Two cups of coffee shouldn't of been my only pre-run breakfast. However, I finished and felt so much better. So, for me it might just take a couple of weeks to get back to normal running. Although, I may put a small race on the calendar for December.
