I still exist!

So it's been over 2 weeks since I've posted anything and I've been trying to figure out why it's been so hard to get started writing again and I'm just going to blame it on the post-marathon blues… and the fact that it's been beautiful outside so any chance I get, I've been working in my yard. I actually ran a 10k race on May 17 (recap coming soon), but other than that, I haven't done any running outside of soccer. I always feel really good once I get up and actually start running, but I definitely haven't been motivated to get out and do any solo runs lately. I'm finally getting back on track with my running with a 10 miler planned with a friend today, and I've got some pretty substantial races coming up in the next two months, so I've tried to come up with a plan to ensure I'll be ready for them:

  • May 31: 10 mile run
  • June 7: 5k race
  • June 13-14: Ragnar Relay trail race (14.8 miles over 3 legs)
  • June 21: 5-7 mile run
  • June 28: ROC race - fun obstacle race (targeting 5-7 mile run this weekend)
  • July 5: 11-12 mile run
  • July 10: The Bear (5 miles, 1541' of elevation gain)
  • July 19: The Scream half marathon (2445' of elevation loss)
Now that I've started to lay out my summer plans, the realization that my goal races are only 6 & 7 weeks away is definitely getting me motivated to get out the door and start training again!

Did you ever hit a motivational wall after a big race? What do you do to get back in the groove?
