Fall slump

Been in a bit of a bad running mood lately.

Just seems like every time I get out for a run, another part of my body seems to be creaky or cranky. Or I catch a cold. Or something.

Now, Fall is usually my favorite season - I love the nip in the air, the colors, all that. In Nevada, the fact that it's not in the 90's is good, too. Sweatshirt and shorts weather. This year, though, it's killing me - the dark mornings make me want to stay in bed, I can feel the change in weather in my joints.

So, yeah, sorry for whining. Gotta buck up, find some motivation, and be a happy little running camper.

I did make myself go out for a little trip around the neighborhood this morning, 3 miles. Can't say I felt great, but it wasn't too bad. I'll see if I can get myself out again on Friday.

Sorry to hear, but I am sure you'll be back to your normal training soon.
I see the Run through Reno Marathon on your agenda--Are you running that?

Thinking about it. Amber is doing the half, I might do that with her, or maybe the full. Depends on the course, mostly, which they haven't posted anywhere. I'll decide on Saturday at the expo/signup.

oooooohhh, hope I'm ready for that half! I've been running mostly short distances during my training lately (you're right about it being extra difficult to get out of bed when it's still dark out!). Could definitely use a runnin' partner if you need some motivation~ :)
