I seem to have lost my mojo or at least misplaced it.
I was a strong runner all summer and then the last two weeks I have struggled. Yes, the weather in Maine has been super humid, and I don’t tolerate the heat very well, but I still have to get out there and do it when I can. I am keeping a 9-10min pace for the most part, but I keep losing my focus and then I stop and walk. So by the time I’m done, it puts me at at 13min mile which is very disappointing. I havent done any more formal races this summer because of that. I dont feel that I am able to keep up a decent current pace that would allow me to feel good about any race. So… I have been doing lots of virtual ones, which allow me to donate money to different causes and charities, and allows me to run when it’s convenient for me, with no pressure, really. Is that a good thing? I dont know. I feel so strongly that I have to get out there and run to keep up my weight loss. SO… I will do it. But man, it is hard lately. My legs feel like lead and I just can’t seem to focus. Have any of you gone through this? How did you get past it??? Maybe this would help.. lol
