A Weekend in Review

I hate the saying, but I have a case of the Mondays today.  I am not one to generally “boo hoo” for too long, but I don’t see an end to this dark cloud.  I am hoping a good workout/run tonight will snap me out of it.

First off:  My asthma has been terrible lately.  I find myself needing my inhaler more and more and struggling through every run…and I’m talking, can barely make it through a mile and a half.  My training plan has me doing 12 this weekend (not to mention a half marathon in 2 weeks).  That should be awesome considering I can’t keep my breath while walking the dog these past 2 weeks. 

For non-asthma sufferers, it is awful.  You feel like your air intake doesn’t make it any further into your body than your throat.  I can practically feel it stop just at my sternum.  I am doing some holistic remedies research, and may have to make a visit to my doctor, we shall see.

Easter wasn’t fabulous.  Though I did spend the day partaking in one of my favorite past-times; spring cleaning. But not even my lady-wood for a completely re-organized kitchen and bathed dog could pull me out of my funk. 

Again, I am sure it has everything to do with the state of my running right now.  One good run and I will be back to my old self.  But part of me thinks that my current demons go a little deeper than that.  I think it has a lot to do with need for a change of scenery.  I am way over due.

Happy Monday.  I hope the Easter Bunny was good to you all!
