I've been in a bit of a funk the last week.
Lots going on in my head coupled with working a week of nights result in a bit of a stressed out Badgergirl. And even though going for a run or hopping on my bike for a ride would have been a good way to clear my head, I just wasn' t feeling it.
So I didn't.
I call it a week long recovery week after the Oshkosh Triathlon. Physically I probably didn't need an entire week since I really wasn't sore. But like I said, lots of thoughts swirling around in my head and I was stuck in this funk.
So I recovered for a week. And then added on a couple of extra days after I tripped and fell down a couple of stairs at my parents' house this weekend. Yes. I was stone cold sober at the time. And yes, I'm OK. Just a few circle-shaped bruises from where I landed on the mat in their garage.
But today? Today I ran. Came home, changed into shorts and a tank and ran. I didn't go far, just 2 miles, but it felt good. And I'm looking forward to doing it again. Because now that my triathlons are done for the year, I think I'm going to switch gears a bit and focus on the running. Try to regain a little bit of the speed I've lost - and shoot for that 32 minutes 5K - and increase the mileage.
And maybe if I run fast enough I'll leave that funk in my dust. A girl can hope.
