True Life: I Hate Running Right Now


It’s been two months and one day since I ran the Boston Marathon.  I took 10 full days off from running after the race to recover but I am having a hard time getting back into it.  I will run the Falmouth Road Race in August but I have no other races on the calendar.  I’m not injured but I’m not ready to start training.  I don’t want to race anytime soon.  Running isn’t fun for me right now.

I’m tired?  I should rest.

Grey skies?  I’ll pass. 

Cool weather?  No thanks.

Rain?  Not a chance.

Last month I ran 5 days in a row on the beach in Texas.  It was awesome.  I can’t tell you the last time I ran 5 days in a row but running on the beach in the hot morning sun was such a treat.  I thought it would jumpstart my running but I came home to 5 days in a row of rain.


Don’t get me wrong—I have been staying active.  I just haven’t been running.  I teach at least 3 spin classes a week.  I have been doing some On Demand home workouts.  I go to run club… occasionally—like when Danielle brought ice cream cake to celebrate Jason’s graduation.  G and I ran to the donut truck a few times.  I climbed Mt. Monadnock.  I explored some trails near my house.  I bought an inflatable kayak.  I even SUPed once.



When I’m ready, I will start training again.  Maybe then I’ll return to blogging.  But until then…

  1. This place was very comfortable. Restrooms were decent. Coming here with my friends was an amazing experience. This is among my favorite event locations now, because of its excellent food, perfect lighting, vibrant atmosphere and great ventilation.
