I don’t know what is going on but this week I had no motivation to run. I also felt more tired than usual. I ran 2 days this week (my coach has me running 5 days a week). I have been massaging my left foot every single day. It only hurts a little when I get up in the morning but then it feels fine.
Even Lola felt tired too. 🙂
I decided not to run the three half marathons (WY, SD, and ND) next month. No way will I be ready. The race in New Mexico is still up in the air because my mother’s birthday is September 9th and we have a birthday party for her. Her party will not be the 7th so most likely it will be the 14th.
We are still dealing with some issues with my mother’s medical card. I am so frustrated. She has County Care which is a managed care organization through Medicaid. I don’t understand why her coverage changed and why she doesn’t have medical coverage. County Care only offers long term care. She was assigned a PCP located downtown and I tried switching her to her current one but couldn’t do it because she has Medicare and that covers her medical doctor appointments. At this point, why would she switch her PCP? Ugh! Rant over..for now. Thanks for listening.
On Tuesday I went to see “The Lion King”. Have you seen it? I loved it! I want to see it again, and again, and again.
I may have been banned from ordering from the Brooks website, but that didn’t stop me from ordering these from Zappos. These are the Ghost 12. Aren’t they lovely? I have the Ghost 11 and love them.
I ordered some new Oiselle gear. I love the new colors.
The new tops have a watch window. Not sure If I like it but we’ll see once I start wearing them.
I emailed my coach and she suggested I take some time off from structured running but definitely go for a run if I feel like it. She also said not to put any pressure/expectations on me nor worry about pace. Maybe now the new shoes and gear will motivate me to go out for a run. 🙂
How do you stay motivated? Is it new shoes? New gear? Or simply take some time off?
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
