That might seem a little dramatic to you but on this side of the screen it’s exactly what I’ve been feeling like lately. It’s like a bad case of the Mondays except Monday is every day.
I guess you could call it post-marathon blues or just winter (except it hasn’t really been that cold). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat in front of this screen thinking about things to discuss only to have it all seem insignificant right now.
Workouts are less than stellar, my mileage is down dramatically, I’m not making very disciplined food choices so subsequently, I feel out of shape.
I think the thing that scares me is that when I think about goal setting for 2016 the kinds of goals that would’ve gotten me excited and motivated just aren’t doing it this year. I think that’s in part to the fact that 2015 was a hell of a year and I don’t know how I can top it.
And to top it all off, I feel like I’ve lost my ability to tell a story. Post come to mind and then when I go to write it, the eloquence I heard in my head doesn’t seem to want to make an appearance on paper (or screen).
I’m not writing this in hopes that you’ll dish out the compliments. Quite the contrary. I guess I’m venting. I’m also secretly hoping that by verbalizing all of this that it will some how be a cleansing experience and I can some how move on.
A week on the beach is coming our way soon and I couldn’t be more ready. It might be just the thing I need to pull me out of this slump. Luckily for us, I’ve got some great fitness tech goodies to write about and give away later this week so stick with me! I promise it will be worth it.
In the meantime, happy Monday.
