Maybe it was all the rain and flooding we had.

Maybe it was all the extra non-running activities of the week.
Whatever it was Saturday I felt like I had poured glue on my a** because it was stuck to the livingroom chair most of the day.
I call this a FUNK.
This sometimes happens to me when the kids are not around as this past Saturday they went with Hubbs for some Daddy child bonding AND I was attempting to limit my miles and effort with my next Ultra 5 days away. I just don't function very well while I am in a FUNK.
I tried to tell myself that my legs, hips and feet would appreciate the rest and I would perform better in my next race BUT the mind is a powerful thing.
And habit, to the tune of 309 days is a crazy creature
I thought about all kinds of random things to help the time pass the time.
I thought about:
warm treadmill smells
of course that just brought me back to thinking about what I was trying to NOT think about...
I survived Saturday with only 3 miles.
Luckily I made a full FUNK recovery on Sunday with a great new attitude and 8 miles.
This morning Day #309 I enjoy 3 miles to help start my day off right.
Five days until the HAT Run.
Tomorrow we'll talk about goals, the difference a technical course can make, and the joys of being FUNK-free.
How do you survive being in a FUNK?
