I don’t know who stole my magic. I don’t write to complain, but rather confess – I am so uninspired. I’m not keeping up with the marathon training. Period.
I don’t want to blame it on my new assignment at work. I’m not blaming that feeling of longer-than-expected recovery from my first full marathon back in September. Who am I to blame the weather? Not the weather.
I don’t know. I don’t have any valid excuses.
When I was training for my first full marathon, I would run 3x a week and play badminton 3x a week. I was to run not only for myself, but for a sponsored charity. Now, badminton’s is so-not in the calendar, and I’m not running 4x a week, as planned. Haysss…
I went for my tried-and-tested forms of therapy – music, spa, meditation, visual art, shopping, hanging out with friends…
All I could think of is…vacation in a far away place…away from it all! I know that I won’t be able to do so until February 2012. Just my luck.
With only 33 days left before the Singapore Marathon, I should be in the zone again by now.
