Dragged

I am generally feeling down at the moment and not really sure what it is that is bubbling under the surface. I hate being this way especially when nothing has really set it off but I have an idea it is not being very happy at work, a general upheaval in my personal life or if it is just being a miserable git...I have a feeling it is the latter.

Take this evening, I am normally waiting impatiently at the front door ready to run down to the club but I was found wanting when at the very last moment I grabbed my kit off the pile and was sufficiently late enough to have to drive there. Standing in the cool air I listened to tales of daring do from some of the runners races at the weekend but refrained from talking about my 52 miler this Saturday.

Thinking of this run I chose to run with a slower, shorter group tonight but this run held no joy for me and I just plodded it out but did push it out on a steeper hill.

I think I will rest up now and wallow in my general morose mood which I hope goes away as quickly as it came.

  1. Jezza mate...I've been going through this malaise since the SDW100. These things catch up on you, after the euphoria of the summer as a GamesMaker and the big runs you have done, the holiday and the academic results from the girls, you have depleted your body of dopamine in a big way. Grind out a couple of marathons. Have a long run with a buddy. Don't put all your eggs in the White Cliffs basket and enjoy the rest of the year......It has been legendary.

    Have a cider too!

  2. I don't give advice often......but I think that might have made sense!

    Go spend some cash on some new kit too!

  3. Have to agree with ultra bobban, tho not sure I would throw in a couple of marathons as a pick me up. Maybe a couple of 400mtrs with a 2min recovery. ;-)

  6. I think I am in agreement Jez. You have had a phenomenal year so far. With being a Games Maker just the most exciting thing ever!! How cool was that, eh. It's no wonder you're feeling down a bit. But get back out there, get your legs in those budgie smugglers (with suitable curtesy shorts over the top) and run! Just run! Oh and dont forget to give me a damn good thrashing as well......on scrabble of course :-)
