A couple bad runs since returning back from a weekend away have knocked my motivation slightly. My aim was to be up to 12k. last week. I don't care about the time just increasing stamina and distance. Both runs I couldn't seem to find that extra bit of energy to reach it. Is anybody else OCD about their routine? My last run, pressed my Garmin at the start and thought I wouldn't bother looking at it until around the 3k mark , looked and I must have not started it as it didn't record. So frustrating!! anyway pressed it when realised but felt my run mean't nothing until that watch recorded. Then my phone starts playing up, probably not a great place to shove your phone in your sports bra- but always worked up until now!!. I had somehow deleted my running playlist and had to go back to albums. Running and fiddling with a phone forced to listening to some of my daughters rap tracks!! (she had obviously downloaded!!). was not my kind of music. I get to the halfway point breathing a little disarray now (OCD kicks in!) and woman passes me with her dogs and tells me 3 times in a concerned manner that I should stop and not overdo it. I politely smile but inner thoughts shall not be shared!! I carried on home running all the way but have never felt so tearful with my routine messed up. Hoping for a better and happier run tomorrow and checked several times all gadgets are in good working order!!!! Happy running to all
