Laziness may appear attractive,
but work gives satisfaction.
Ugh! Where did my motivation go? I ran my 1/2 marathon March 13th, I PR'd in case you didn't know, and then Monday did my Krav Maga workout as scheduled. Tuesday I ran 2 miles to shake out my legs and BAM! Nothing. I was done. Tired. I don't even know what happened to the rest of my week. I didn't go to Krav Maga Wednesday, I didn't run Thursday or Friday either. I went to Krav Maga on Saturday and by Saturday night I was toast again. What is the deal with this recovery time? I went to Krav Maga last night, didn't run today and will be tested for my first belt in Krav Maga tomorrow night. I have a trail 1/2 marathon this Saturday and I am so not motivated to go. I know I will feel better if I run it, but I feel like I have lost my mojo and just want to be lazy for a while.
I feel like some of this funkiness is coming from the fact that I PR'd. You know the feeling when you finish a good book and you are disappointed you don't have it to look forward to anymore. Well now that I have accomplished my 1/2 marathon goal I don't really know what to do with myself anymore. I do not have a marathon picked out for this year yet and I am not certain I will choose one? Most of my triathlons are summer ones and I feel like I am in a gray area of training even though I really just got started. Does anyone do abbreviated training cycles with breaks in between?
Why I Kick A$$: Because I when I count calories I gain weight, when I pig out on junk food, I lose weight. Who knew oreos and ice cream were the way to my goal weight.
