Has anyone seen my mojo?

Sunday, June 05, 2011

My vegetarianism (hmm, is that a word?) has been going great. Today was Day 10 and I've had absolutely no meat cravings at all. It also seems to have significantly helped my tummy issues! Yay!

On the other hand, my running mojo has all but completely vanished lately :(

I decided to start back at step one and so I joined the Spark 5k training team/program. I think it was 2 nights ago that I joined, and since then I've been sitting here (well, in between work, errands, shopping and cooking, etc...) waiting for my mojo to magically reappear.

It hasn't happened.

So tonight I thought "Screw you, Mojo!" and I went running without it ;)

    AWESOME! I hear the MOJO caught up with you on the run?!?!

    I am starting a C25K Program for my first timed 5K on Saturday, October 29, 2011 and I'm excited to get started!

    Mojo is a fickle friend to say the least! I have been struggling too and since the weather is hot and my allergies are so bad I went back to the gym where I have at least two fans blowing on me and I can watch tv while I run. The great thing about the gym is that I get to do weight training also, something that is hard to do when running on trails outside!

    Ya know, I've kinda been feeling the same way. School is done. I have no races scheduled until December. The weather is unbearably hot in Florida. I had to walk about 2 miles out of my 7.53 run (was supposed to be 8) yesterday.

    So I too got out without my mojo and did a little 2 mile run. I think I'm going to do it again tomorrow and the day after and. . .

    Something's gotta give!

    Good luck to you!

    Hmm, a lot of people are feeling unmotivated. Are you getting enough sleep? Enough healthy carbs? Water?

    I'm glad your tummy issues are helped by the change in diet. emoticon
    I think you're just really, really tired. But maybe if you get in a few "screw you, mojo" runs it'll come back. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Somehow I suspect it has something to do with the fact that you've been working like a fiend? Yeah, sometimes you really do just have to do it. Nike is brilliant!
