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

Single Leg lunge off the weight bench- body weight only

Sumo Squats- 4×10 @ 25lbs

Lying leg raises-3×12 @ 30 lbs

Bench Press-3×12 @ 40lbs

Flys-3×8 @ 15 (upped the weighed, hence the shorter reps)

Chest Press with an exercise band- 3×12 (20lb resistance)

Deep explosive squats holding the exercise ball-3×10 @ 6lbs

Did a treadmill program- 20 minutes of hills

then just did a brisk walk for 2 miles. Meh. Pathetic I tell you.

Volver mi mojo corriendo!!!!!! Te echo de menos!!

  1. You ARE a runner now and always! You are NOT a loser! EVERYONE goes through this crap whether they admit it or not! Try to just think positive and enjoy what you are doing, everything will eventually come together (at least that’s what I keep telling myself)! BTW nice workout 🙂

    • Ugh. Thank you. I’m just so disgusted. I will get over it. Thanks for your kind words. I appreciate it. Sometimes I just need a swift kick. Ok, ok more than sometimes!!!

      You too!! You WILL be back..

  2. well I can give you a swift kick if that’s what you want lol
