There are already a million thoughts going thru my head and the taper has just begun. I definitely have a case of the gloomies this morning. That “rain cloud over my head” feeling. Even El Cap asked me why I looked so sad today. The thing is that there is nothing wrong. I just feel blue. That last long run really did me in. I have a sore throat and I woke up with a huge cold sore this morning… sexy! I’m so glad that I have more than two weeks to get healthy again. I wonder how I will be after the marathon. Scary thought. But to be honest, I am already thinking about new goals for after the marathon. I know my first and foremost priority will be to get back to my goal weight – at least get my pants fitting again. (I set goals when I get depressed)
The only positive so far from not running this week: My appetite is totally non-existent.
Dinner & Games tonight with friends. Bring on the charades (and martinis)! That will cheer me up.
