There was no long walk this Sunday. I just wasn't feeling up to it. Physically, things are fine. Mentally, not so much. Ever since my race last weekend, I've been feeling blah. Blue. Meh. I walked once on my treadmill on Thursday mainly because I needed to test out my new running shoes, not because I needed to train. Along came Sunday and I had to force myself to get on the treadmill again. Pre-race I was excited and looking forward to the half marathon in October. Now? I've seriously considered switching to the 5K although I won't (and Mommikins wouldn't let me if she knew!). Is this normal? I don't know but I'm bummed about being bummed. Bummer.
I bought a new pair of shoes a week or so ago. They're going back. Surprisingly, I love the colour. I know... what's wrong with me, right? See above! Just wearing them around the house, they started to bother the arches of my feet. I wore them on the treadmill yesterday (lasted a mere 1 mile!) and the Thursday (2 miles) and was uncomfortable with them both times. I was reminded almost instantly why I switched from these last year. Tight arches and calves, problems with my knees. Back they go! I'll be switching them for another pair of my beloved Mizuno Enigmas.
That's it for now. Trying to get back into the running/walking/racing mood. Only 6 more Sundays and then... BOOM. Marathon weekend.
