I’m struggling to find my mojo this week. I’m not sure what it is, but something just isn’t right. The legs, the lungs, the mind… it all just feels a bit out of balance at the moment. Something is missing, but I’m determined to find it again.
This evening’s run was to be an easy 7K to try to build up my distance again and, while I did manage to cover the whole 7K, it wasn’t easy by any means. It could have been the temperature, maybe I wasn’t hydrated enough or perhaps I should have eaten more before run, but it just didn’t feel right.
I took plenty of water with me, tried changing my route to run in the shade and even had walk breaks (which I hate doing), but my head, my heart or whatever it is that usually pushes me through just wasn’t in it. I don’t know. Perhaps it was just one of those runs that everyone has from time to time.
On the up-side though, I completed the 7K that I set out to do. It wasn’t fun, and it wasn’t pretty, but the fact that I kept going is something to hold on to.
Tomorrow is another day so hopefully I’ll find my mojo again on my next run.
How do you get yourself through those bad runs? What do you do when you can’t find your mojo? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
