As of late I've been in a bit of a funk. I'm feeling a little like the Glee kids after watching this performance from Vocal Adrenaline :)
The cause of my funk??? So many different things but it all stems from my job and the constant travel. After 8 1/2 years I am beyond done and ready to move on. BUT I'm am trying to change that by submitting my CV like crazy and researching possibly going back to school. I wish either someone would call me back or I could find a position that makes me happy! Ideally I would love to take a break all together but I don't think my husband would agree ;)
While my job may be the root of the problem my release isn't helping either. I'm not getting that love and feeling from running. I haven't in awhile. Lately I'm running naked (without a garmin and sometimes ipod) and not following any real plan in hopes that going back to basics resurrects some old feelings. Mostly I feel like breaking up. I know I need to give it some time because I go through this after big races. Unfortunately this is the longest my funk and general bad mood has lasted and I'm becoming a bit frustrated.
But it hasn't been all bad funktastic feelings.
Since it's humid and sometimes hot I've been enjoying my most favorite post-run treat - Fla - VOR - ICE
Reminds me of being 5 :)
And even though it was all doom and gloom outside this entire weekend I managed 10 miles. The rain caught up to me and I loved every minute it lasted. Afterwards the rain held off long enough for us and some friends to enjoy Ribfest. Not too crowded or hot - one of the best years for it yet!
the best ribs we tasted today
a little squinty but not bad ;)
So I hope in no time I'll be able to turn around my funk just like those Glee kids.
