A lot has happened the past month, so I figured I’d give you all a quick recap 🙂
There was some time in Charleston, SC and at the beach (with an obligatory stop at South of the Border!)
And there was time spent at a few Nats games
Using the free beer stein
(not pictured: losing the free beer stein, then having my friend beg someone for theirs)
Enjoying some sweet treats (this picture times 100 is more accurate)
Late night walks home
And putt-putt at the National Building Museum!
Oh yeah, and watching lots and lots of Olympic events! Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much running.
I’ve been in a bit of a running funk lately. I just haven’t had much desire to run hard or long, or even easy. Instead, I’ve just been all too content with watching Olympians work hard! But I’m slowly emerging from it, and ready to dive back into MCM training. I went for a “hard” run last night, and it definitely showed how little I have been working out. I did 5 min hard, 5 min easy, 4 min hard, 4 min easy, 3 min hard and 3 min easy. At that point, I called it quits. It was hard, but not in the fun way. It just sucked. Speed work is never easy, but this didn’t even leave me feeling strong. I just felt pitiful. 😦 Needless to say, I will be jumping back into training this week! Looking forward to busting out some repeat 800s and feeling good about it!
Do you ever go through a fitness funk? How do you pull yourself out of it?
