A Running Sabbatical but Motivation Still Down

After the 25K I took a running sabbatical. Three solid days of morning rain was all I needed to sleep in. After a few days rest, I was hoping my left leg would be fine and I could get after the rest of the training schedule. The leg is better but I still get occasional reminders something might be wrong. I don't know if it's just psychological, but it's ruined my motivation. I had a couple good runs in the cool weather last week but I'm missing something. I stall before going out on weekend runs. The motivation just isn't there.

Hey Kevin,

Maybe you can take a few more rest days or scale back some of your runs. You just finished the 25k a few weeks ago and your body and mind may just need a break. What's going on with your leg? Hope it's getting better. Hang in there :)

Kevin, if you're hurting for motivation there is no hope for the rest of us. Strength!
