Havin' a case of the blahs...

I am so tired. It is cloudy today and I woke up feeling out of sorts. Don't wanna do the triathlon this weekend. Waaaaaaahhh!
It is only a sprint and I would bag it except my team is counting on me for the team championships. My heart is not in it. I am dragging around, not sure what to do with myself these past few days.

Listless:
The Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English Date: 2008
list·less / ˈlis(t)lis/ • adj. (of a person or their manner) lacking energy or enthusiasm: bouts of listless depression.

Yep-that pretty much describes me right now...

Don't know quite how to get out of it. I have a short workout today, a trip to the radiology Dept to have a year follow-up on a benign thyroid lump I had last year, meeting with peeps who are doing the Colorado Relay tonite. I have been recruited as a driver and back-up "runner". Kind of like being on the second string, ready to jump in the game if needed. I am looking forward to this actually. Will be with some of my favorite folks, some of my team-mates. But not the pressure of racing.

Sigh....

Perfectly natural with all of the hard racing you and H have done. Enjoy your "blah" day...or week. You're probably going to need to get "down" for awhile so you can get "up" for AZ training. We're all right here with you...so I'll sigh along with you.

i think there is a case of this going around...

hang in there though and listen to your body. you are in such amazing shape, taking a few days to just do what you want certainly won't hamper your goals!

you could just 'do' the race instead of 'racing' it - might trick your mojo into coming back?

We can all commiserate together tomorrow morning before the race expressing how blah we feel about it. LOL.
