What is wrong with me

I just haven't been feeling up to working out much at all. Yesterday my dad wanted some help getting my mom some jewelry and that sounded like a totally suitable reason for abandoning my bodyfit class (which I typically love).

This morning I only had to run 3 miles but I struggled through it until the last 1/2 mile. I just didn't want to get up. I had a headache I feel swollen from the heat. I just feel yuck. However, once I pushed through. I actually had a decent time and a good run. There was a pretty nice breeze when I would run west. That actually made me smile because in a few weeks I will be in FL! I know it will be very hot and humid on my runs there, but the ocean breeze will make it all okay!

How has your training been going? What do you do when you get in a slump?


  1. everyone has ups and downs... when I'm in a slump I usually try to find a new place to run that I've never been to before... either that or I'll switch up my workouts and do a quick inteval workout or weight workout. Something that I can squeeze into a 20 minute block.

  2. Ditto to what Ethan said. Try to switch up your workout, do some cross-training instead of a run, or try running earlier, before 'stuff' gets in the way. As with most things in life, just taking the first step is the most important one. Most runs improve past mile 1...
