This is how I feel when I have to go for my runs or do any other form of exercise these days…I just can’t seem to find the same enthusiasm I had when I was training for the Auckland Marathon. Perhaps the post marathon blues have only just hit me now, or maybe I really need a break from running….
In reality I don’t need to start training in earnest for the Colville Connection until mid December, so I could take a break. However, I also know I need to exercise everyday, otherwise I become ratty and fidgety. Then there is the issue of being mad at myself for being lazy, feeling bad because I have done nothing. And what happens to me then is I start to stuff my face!

So there’s the Catch 22. What to do? Take a break from exercising….rest, relax, get my eating back on track. On just suck it up, stop whingeing and get on with it!
