This is getting ridiculous...

Finally, at 3 this afternoon, I got my running clothes on to head out for an easy 6.  I check in on my new resident to get her anything she needs before I leave.  We take care of things.  Then she feels queasy.  Suddenly it is more than queasy.  Oh, boy.  I kick into high gear and kick off my shoes.  It is going to be awhile before I can leave.  After putting off running all day.  After not feeling the desire to run.  Now I am desperate to get out there on a beautiful fall day.  And I can't.  Sigh.

I am struggling to get back the desire to run.  My last marathons have left me wanting more.  I wanted to get out and run immediately.  I had to make myself wait until my soreness was gone.  This time, I can hardly get myself off the sofa much less out the door.  I have a schedule on the fridge.  I have a race planned in December with a friend.  I am looking forward to running some Pikermis and getting some serious PRs.  Yet there is a huge limit to my motivation.  Sigh.  Maybe I should have some ice cream.  Double sigh.

I could have used another run today. And some ice cream too. Wish we were a little closer.

Hope your resident is doing better now!

Well, I have a 2 liter bottle od Diet Dr. P. cooling for you when you get a chance to come down. OK, so maybe not, but I will go get one anytime you say you are coming over. we could do a short run around my town. I am just a little closer than ERG.
