Several months ago, I announced my marathon comeback. My intention was to focus on the marathon distance for the first time since qualifying for Boston.
Fast forward to today, and instead of being in week 8 of an intense training cycle, I'm hardly running at all. I'm officially in a slump.
But you know what? I don't feel guilty about it.
For the first time -- maybe ever -- I'm not beating myself up for failing at my original goal. I'm at peace with this lack of motivation and training.
As it turns out, NMA Radio co-host Doug is dealing with his own running slump of sorts, only he's 1 week away from a 50k, and his training looks a lot different than mine.
In today's episodes, we talk about those slumps, what we're dealing with, and how we're embracing the lack of motivation instead of fighting it.
