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!
