Running was just starting to feel like more of a chore than a pleasure.
The good news is that I think the slump may be over.
My last couple of weeks of running have felt great! In fact, yesterday, I did something that I don't think I've ever done before. As I was nearing the end of my planned route, turning onto my block and getting close to my building, I thought, "I'm not that tired. In fact, I actually feel pretty good. I think I could keep going." And so instead of stopping and heading inside to stretch, I ran past my building and did an extra loop around my neighborhood.
