Lazy runner

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.
