I am struggling this week. I felt like I was flying high the last month or so and now I am flying low.
I got on the treadmill this morning and found it realy hard to motivate myself to do my sprint work I had planned for the morning. I cranked up my music and pushed but I felt like something was missing, I didn’t have the zest and enthusiasm for it all this morning and yesterday I couldn’t get out of bed – I was too tired – so going to take it easy in case I am coming down with something.
It’s really hard from a motivation point of view when you are running well and then suddenly energy levels lower and you can’t even run at 12 km ph easily when you’ve been used to sprinting at least 2 km ph faster. I am putting it down to a lot of training, a couple of late nights and not enough water.
I wrote a previous post about motivation so I guess I should take my own advice for once!
