Not There

I was not motivated to run today, which is surprising since I hadn’t run since Thursday. I figured the 3 full days of not running would be enough to get me running at lunchtime. But it wasn’t there. I seriously thought that I could just sit at my desk and do just about anything other than run.

But I didn’t, I figured that if I could just lace up the shoes and head out I would feel better. And so I did. Well, at least the lacing up the shoes part.

I ran my Fave route with the optional TVA Tower extension to make it 4.32 miles and I just wasn’t feeling it. I did not have the twinkle in my eye or the skip in my step. It was nice to see what my training has gotten me, because even though I wasn’t in the groove today, I still cranked out a 8:55 average pace for the course.

So, now I am contemplating if I should race this weekend. Technically, I am not signed up for it, but if I am not it the groove this week, it might be a waste to drive down to Georgia. Then again, this might just be a temporary lull in my workout and I could have a great day tomorrow. I had planned to run, Mon & Tues, then I would find out if I was good for the weekend and then just run Friday, a pre-race day warmup.

In other not-so-Not-There news, I have been in a lull in responding to comments, both on my blog and on your blog as well. I see a post and there’s nothing that comes to mind when I want to respond. Not my normal funny, off the wall comment, I just sit there struggle to say something then move along, not even leaving a footprint that I was there.

And when I do leave a comment, I feel like it may be inappropriate or lacking substance. Hopefully, this is just temporary, because as I am becoming stuck for writing comments, it’s starting to move over into writing posts as well.
