I used to be an ok runner. I did a few ultra events, culminating in a big multiday event.
Now I run 4 times a week, 12-16 miles a week if I am lucky.
I feel bad about my running. If I am honest I often don't enjoy it, it can feel like a chore. I struggle to run more than 6-7 miles for my long run, and I don't like feeling this way.
I should say immediately post long multi day event, i.e. the next day, I lost my job and had to change my career entirely. I used to work part time and had plenty of time and energy for running. I now work full time in a fairly stressful temporary job, and am working hard to try and make it permanent.
I have also put on a bit of weight.
Ideal scenario would be to feel really fit again, which I don't, lose a bit of weight, enjoy my running, but not have to spend hours and hours doing it - I don't have time!
Oh, and, I have absolutely no desire to race any more. I used to a lot, but now I don't want to.
Any ideas/support/help/advice gratefully received.
