172 Days to Go - Cracking the Code
I'm going through one of those dry spells where I start about a dozen different posts per day and actually post none of them.
The running is going along. I managed a waddling, crawling 14+ mile run on Saturday which is the longest in a while. The numbers are increasing albeit a bit below those suggested in the plan.
These non-posting periods usually are associated with some general running/posting/being blahs. They are often accompanied by internal statements like, "ennh what's the point?" and "Why bother?" and "Pass me another dozen doughnuts" and "Fuhget about it" (the last one if I was an italian mobster). Its basically summarized by everyone's favorite cheer:
Apathy, apathy, that's our cry!
So how does one break out of this? How does one decipher the inscrutable logic, and down feelings?
I guess its just by doing. For me its purposefully not worrying about perfection, forgetting about all the other past failures, and charging forward. I can't change the past, I can't ensure the future, but I can do something today.
So I did.
I hope you keep posting/doing/running/dreaming/achieving/inspiring me to get off my rump too!
Anyway, a runners world or something similar usually snaps me right out of the blahs. You should find a store that sells Marathon and Beyond magazine. Good stuff.
Sorry, I may be a K teacher but I'm also kind of a hard *$%! Besides, it looks like you have enough *love* in the comments above!
