The Blah’s.

It’s inevitable. Every October nearing the end of the month I get hit with the blah’s. I had such a great September and beginning of October with races and great weather. Then all of a sudden it’s in the 50’s and I get sick and my motivation goes out the window with sporadic appearances until March. I am determined to fight that this year because those signs have already appeared this week. I haven’t ran since Sunday and I’ve had NO desire to at all. My focuses this week have been on Spin, with a 75 minute session Tuesday night to prepare me for…

MY FIRST SPIN AUDITION YESTERDAY! It was such a last minute thing but I am really happy with how my first one went. I will know by next week if I will be teaching or not, so please cross your fingers for me 🙂 It felt really natural for me to be up on the bike, barking orders and providing inspiration along with party jams. I hope this is just the beginning! More details once I find out next week.

So yeah, all that I’ve really done all week is work, Spin, eat, homework, sleep. Must change that tomorrow. I have a 5 mile race on Sunday that I will not be racing just running pretty casually. Especially if I’m actually sick by then, like I feel it coming on in my chest, but I don’t want to push my body and feel worse. Hard to believe it’s been a year since I did the same race! It’s the 5-mile Marathon Kick-off race and let’s pray that following the race is NOT a hurricane like last year.

I’ve been super lazy with food this week too. I had no appetite Monday or Tuesday, but after yesterday’s audition I stayed for 2 bootcamp type auditions that were the hardest 20 minutes of my life. I left feeling extremely famished so I got a quick brunch at Grey Dog before coming home and laying in bed for 7 hours. Literally.

Once I got home I took a hot shower and laid in bed watching Louis C.K. season 3 all day. I didn’t move until I finally got hungry at 7 PM and decided to order sushi from Seamless. A.K.A. heaven/danger. It shouldn’t exist that you can lay in bed and order whatever you are craving right from your phone without moving or speaking to a human. So, so lazy.

My legs are crazy sore from basically 2 hours of Spin in 12 hours and 9483948 jump squats so today is a rest day and hopefully I will get my butt out of my warm cozy bed for a run tomorrow morning!

Do you go through a “blah” transition period from summer to cold weather?
