In a funk

by - Sunday, April 30, 2006

It's been quite awhile since I've last posted, so I apologize for that. I had to take a week off from training because last Sunday I came down with a wicked case of strep throat. I probably could have been up and running again by Thursday, but I didn't want to push it, so I took the rest of the week off, and decided to pick back up with training starting today (which lucky for me was a rest day :o). So I guess re-training officially starts tomorrow.

I was so bummed out that I got sick and got thrown off my schedule. I was doing so good, and I had been making good progress and now I feel like I've been dealt a fairly sizeable setback. I mean I know it's nothing huge, and that I will be able to make up for lost time, but I don't know something just didn't feel right about not being able to run this week.

In general though, I've been feeling a little bit down and out. I'm not really sure what's going on, or what caused my mood to plummit this past week (maybe it was being sick) but I am in some sort of a funk and I'm not enjoying it one bit.

I'm hoping for a turn around this week when I can pick back up with my running again. Maybe being able to run again will make everything else that feels out of whack fall into place.

I can at least hope!

  1. It's discouraging to have to take time off during training. I always feel like I'll lose everything I've gained, though that generally turns out to not be the case. Sounds like your body is feeling better and your spirit will likely follow once you get back to running.
