In a Funk

   So I have hit a funk? Tired and unmotivated. Miles have fallen off....trying to regain the drive. I wonder if the colder weather has put me in a state of torpor? I feel sluggish, lethargic, and blah....not sick...just blah...you know..dull!
  I finally had a decent run today. I actually knocked off some quality miles at decent pace. One mile was 8 min mile! That used to be my easy training pace. One thing I believe...you can get some of your speed back. Back in the day I was rail thin! I weighed in at 162lbs dripping wet. Now I'm stuck on 180! If I could regain that weight I would be happy!! Well, I've a busy weekend. Wedding rehearsal tonight, wedding tomorrow, Sunday will be very full as it is every week. I love what I do!! Peace!

Even 22 months or so back, I was fine (hard to compare because I moved from about 600' above sea level to 5700'). Then I got an injury and couldn't run. My weight shot up and I can't get below 190# — ideal BMI and running weight for me is 168-174#. I'm 2 years older, sure, but age alone should have a fairly small impact. I'm convinced it's the pounds that are weighing me down (sorry, pun intended — but I am serious).

Rough week

     Too busy!! Yet I do absolutely love what I do it certainly can thwart running time! I had to skip my run yesterday and with the run cu...
