A Running Update...

So this week I was supposed to run another half. But after Brandon left for Arkansas, I just felt off. Not physically, but emotionally.

I still feel this way.

He and I are a team. Right now I'm operating one man down.

Plus when he left, it was on the tail end of my post race running blues. Mine last about two weeks. It just seemed to continue once he left.

(Side Note: How do you beat your post-race blues?)

I still managed to get my 10 mile run in that I needed, but the closer I got, the more I felt like I'd lose my mind without Brandon at the finish line.

And did I mention I was still struggling with runner's block?

I tried all my tricks.

I even bought a few things to help turn the tide. Nothing.

Then finally I decided to just let myself think that I wasn't going to run the race for 24 hours.

During the next 24 hours, I bought new shoes and went for a run. I decided it was for the best that I didn't run the race if it made me that eager to run again.

So now I am in training mode again, but I'm not sure what race I'll run in Tulsa.

A half or a full....marathon.

Happy Friday!
