Today’s topic for Tuesdays on the Run is anything running related. It was just one of those weeks where Patty, April, and I were scraping the bottom of our creativity well. Sadly, my running is going about as well.
I used to love running. I never had to push myself to get out the door. Sure, some days I was less motivated than others, but slumps only lasted a few days at most. Then I’d be back to my usual self and striving for some new goal.
I’m running out of things to try. I’ve given myself goals. I’ve run Ragnar. I’ve run long and slow. I’ve run short and fast. Heck, I’ve run short and slow. Sometimes I have a great run. Sometimes I have a sucky run. I’ve tried giving myself a break from running so that I miss it.
Pretty soon I’m going to have to change the name of my blog to “MCM Mama Sits on her A$$ and Eats”.
Have you ever had a running slump that lasted more than a few days? How did you get out of it?
