Regarding: Mojo

someecards.com - Does running to the wine shop count as today's workout?I have lost my mojo.  I can’t seem to find my will to run.  I am still getting out there and doing it.  But it just isn’t the same.  My effort is just slightly off.  My mileage is just a little bit lower.  And I am not usually looking forward to it.

I took some time off recently, so it is not an over-training thing.  It is my overall mojo I think. I changed my vitamins.  Could that be playing a part?  Or maybe it is that my allergies have kicked up a bit.

This may be my opportunity to drop one day of running in lieu of cross-training.  Maybe get back to a spinning class.  Or finally put the air in the tires and get back on the bike.

Whatever it is, I will keep battling through it until it improves.  Sitting around doing nothing isn’t going to make it better.  But I am not forcing myself into an injury either.  I know that one day, it will be better.  And it won’t necessarily be any one thing I did.

About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
