Confession: since getting back from vacation on Saturday, I’ve only worked out twice – both of which have been running only.
Fact: During vacation, I worked out 3 times – 2 being runs + weights, 1 being a circuit workout.
Therefore, since Saturday, March 19th, I’ve only worked out five times. For me, this isn’t much. I typically get a workout in 5-6 days per week! It’s just hard to get your workout mojo back after an incredibly relaxing vaca, no? However, I think it’s back, because all I want to do is go to a spin class and get in a compound strength training workout! 😀
In other news, I F’d up my thumb pretty bad:
The other night, I woke up to a searing pain in my thumb. It was literally throbbing it hurt so bad. I saw that it was bleeding underneat the nail, and knew it was the pressure that was causing the intense pain. I read in Runner’s World once where you can puncture the nail to let some of the blood out to relieve the pressure if you can tolerate the pain. I couldn’t find anything sharp enough to poke a hole in my nail, so I went with the next best thing:
Uhh yeah. That turned out well…
Stopped hurting though!
Well I’m off to get my workout mojo back! It’s sunny and 49 degrees here, and I’m going to take advantage of it with a 40 minute tempo run! Whoop whoop
What are some times when you tend to lose your workout mojo? How do you get it back?
