Training is Really Starting to Drag

Posted by madtrippin on October 3, 2008

I didn’t get to the gym enough times in September to meet the minimum requirement for the insurance coverage.  I’m disappointed in myself for that.  All I need to do is go 8 times a month and they’ll pay down part of the fee.  I’ve been going at least 2 times a week since February + running and biking on the street on top of that.  In September I only went to the gym 6 times and didn’t hit the street once.

I’ve just felt really worn out.  The times I’ve gone and run on the treadmill (like last night), I wasn’t sure I could keep running the whole 30 minutes.  My legs just felt spent after about 10 minutes and my feet seem to be losing a little feeling over the course of the run.  Maybe the foot thing are the Yankz! laces needing to be adjusted.

Granted, I have had a cold for the last week or so, but I’m just feeling unmotivated.  I’m thinking about entering an event just to see if that snaps me out of this training funk.
