Welcome to Funky Town!

This week was a bust as I find myself taking up residence in Funky Town. It may be the weather or just me winding down from so much going on these past few months but I am in a FUNK! And let me add I am not liking it!

Not sure what my problem is but I only ran 11 miles this week! Not good!!! For whatever reason every time I sit still for more than 2 minutes I fall asleep. Tonight we were watching the Pats and Em was watching a movie and off I went to sleepy land! I'm sleeping enough at night...just a tired girl! The forecast looks good for this week so I am hoping to get in at least 5 days of running. Hoping this will break my funk! I am also looking at another race to train for. I am thinking that since I'm not training for anything then maybe I'm getting lazy. Any suggestions?

How do you break out of your funk?


  1. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other. I lower the bar a little so that I feel like I am accomplishing something, even if I'm only running 10-15mpw. Lately I've been on a "do at least 30-min of something everyday" kick which gives me flexibility if I don't want to run. I can lift, do yoga, aerobics, etc without feeling guilty for "missing" mileage. Cut yourself some slack and allow yourself to have fun with your workouts!

  2. I think we all hit periods of funk and I do think it's when we finally have a chance to slow down after life has been crazy busy.

    My way is to schedule some specific get togethers with friends. I really don't feel like going, but once I do they perk me up and get me to start feeling excited about things again.

  3. I break my funk by signing up for a race and getting a race plan in action. Preferably a race that's not too far away, so the race plan starts THAT DAY.
