I have to admit that I've been in a bit of a running funk lately. Ever since my amazing run 10 days ago things have been pretty blah. I'm feeling slow, tired, and sore and not bouncing back from my many months off as quickly as I wanted to. Don't get me wrong I've never been a fast runner, I will never win a race, or even my age group, but I was doing well for me and now I am really struggling. I guess it is also frustrating because I love running, but I know I'll never be that amazing at it.
Well after too many negative thoughts bouncing around in my head the last couple runs it is time to snap out of it. I need to remind myself of how far I have come. Just a little while ago I was in plus sized clothing, 25 pounds heavier, unhappy, and unable to exercise much - now even if I am doing it slowly I am training for a marathon. I have made so much progress. I need to remind myself to snap out of it, stop thinking negative on my runs, and get my butt in gear even harder than before.Runner's World Summer Run Streak -

Stayed right on my calorie goal both yesterday and today. Wonder... If I worked to get myself used to it could I eat less than 1,600 calories a day without being a raving, angry lunatic. Hmmm....
My question to you -
Do you track your food? Do weight watchers? Count calories? Let me know what works for you. I am always looking for ideas.
