321 Days and Two Hours is TOO Long!

Damn. That workout took 2 hours longer than I ever wanted it to. I guess that is what happens when you choose the cardio portion of it to be a lazy walk. I have lost my running Mojo. THERE..I said it. I need to find it and get it back. FAST. I hope that I am not the only one who goes through this garbage. It’s annoying and frustrating and a waste of my emotional energy. I think about running CONSTANTLY. I think about why I’m in a funk, I think about if I’m still a *runner*, I think about why am I such a loser because I lost my Mojo, and lastly I think of all the ways I can try to get it back. What I have found out is, forcing the issue makes it worse. Damn job. Damn running funk I’m in..and damn it all the hell. What the freak.

Do I push the issue? Do I not push the issue? Do I let it go for a while? Do I force myself into short runs? I DON”T KNOW is the answer.

Wide Stance Squats- 4×15 @ 40lbs

Woke up and  had to get my boyfriend from the Kennel! (Jake the puppy!!)
