Not sure if it's the weather or the gym but I have lost my passion, my love for running outside and running long. Not so good being that I have a marathon to train for and so far this year i have not ran longer than 10 miles.
It started when the weather was all icy and too grim even for me to man up to and so I headed for my gym to run there. I decided that I would do interval sessions and speed work... After two weeks I can't be bothered running outside and even when I do, I get bored and fed up after 4 miles and really have to push myself to run a 10K. (even thou thanks to only a couple of weeks of speed work I'm finding that my pace has picked up loads)
I think I have lost the passion and love for long distances? Maybe even running. I have not had a race for over four months and have got a half coming up in two weeks which I hope will get me back on track but the thought of it is not even exciting me... More stressing me out on having to wake at 6 to drive to wales in time to pick up my race number etc)
Has anyone else gone through this, got any solutions or guidance on how I can get back on track. I work odd hours working in theatre so just can't join a running club as I would never be around for the runs. Not of my friends do running and those who do are a lot slower than me and can;t go the distance as they don't train for races just do it for exercise.
It's killing me inside that the very effort and thought of lacing up sends a chill down me.
Any advice or even some bullying comments that will make me man up will be greatly received.
