|Yes, this is me. No, I still can't skate backwards well.|
I was fine. Nothing broken.
But, anyway, on a scale of 1-10, exactly how cliche is it to take to your own running blog and complain about lethargically not really feeling like running? Wait: don't answer that.
I got gchatted up by a running friend yesterday morning (I won't mention his/her name to protect this person lest they wish to remain anonymous). It opened with, "I lost my running mojo." Yeah. I feel it, too. I know it's common when it's cold and you're coming off of a busy running fall and there are no major races on your calendar for the next few months. Where does the motivation come from when it's not external? Oh, wait: don't answer that either.
So what to do? I've asked my sister (AHEM, MANDY, I KNOW YOU READ THIS) to create a training schedule for me, and I'm looking forward to nicer weather and maybe running a spring halfathon or two to lift my spirits. Beyond that... I guess it's just going through the motions until I hit inspiration.
