Days are getting longer and warmer.
Races are approaching.
And all I want to do is stay on the couch, read and watch films on YouTube.
I know, that’s the motivation you’ve been looking for.
Honestly there’s no reason to be lazy: the weather is great, running is going well and I no longer have those pains in the left quad that were making me so anxious.
Have you ever experienced this state of laziness? Partially I blame the weather for this, spring has come early (not complaining) and now is playing hide&seek with us
Once I’m out running I still enjoy it but I find it so difficult to get out! On the other hand, on the rest days I can’t wait to be running again!
I have some suspicions to why it happens
- I sleep poorly these days, melatonin helps but I still wake up too early
- Changing weather makes me moody
- I lost my morning routine which makes me procrastinate in the morning
- I eat more sugary stuff
- The last dentist visit resulted in taking a lot of painkillers which I usually don’t take and my body feels ‘out of normal’
Out of that list I think that poor sleep is the most aggravating of all and the most difficult to manage for me. I can more easily deal with other issues but sleep. Damn, sleep is so powerful mood boosting and recovery tool. Sleep is my favourite.
