What have I done???

After a shocking last few weeks in terms of mood and motivation - I was speaking to Kerryn and diagnosed myself as having the SADS that she mentioned on her blog - just feeling down in the dumps, wanting to crawl into a hole and sleep till winter is over. My shoulder was playing up big time as well, still, so that was pissing me off too, and was still recovering from the flu. In my little world - everything.just.sucked.

Although it isn't feeling the best, I have been given the all-clear to start building up to my 'normal' weights again with upper body stuff. (Whatever normal is now...). My muscles are testing fine, so we'll see what happens after training again. *Fingers crossed*

Yesterday I got a bit of spark back, I jumped in without thinking toooo much about it, and once I had done it, I got the butterflies and the excited feeling in my stomache... yep looks like it's just what the doctor ordered... a NEW GOAL!!! Luckily I've already been doing the base training for it, it's just now I'm doing the training for a reason :) 28kms of hilly trail running... what have I put myself in for???

Yay, shades of the excited ME is returning!!!!!!!!! Watch out! ;P

Glad you got your mojo back - still working on mine.

You didn't take it home with you by accident, did ya?

Thanks for your lovely comment Selina. Very sweet.

Sorry you have not been feeling the best, but that new goal sounds pretty awesome. Wow! It is something pretty huge to aim for. I would love to run 1km these days! lol.

Well good luck with your training and keep that excitement going.

I think many of us are going through this same thing at the moment - lots of colds and flu's around, and injuries... I'm trying to get that spark back myself!

Good to hear that you're back into training and that you've got a new goal to work towards, sounds like just what the doctor ordered!

That's great you have a new goal. It really helps to give you that little spark when you have something to work towards. 28 km's is amazing. One day I'd love to be able to run a hilly 28 km course.
