No question about it. I’m deep into my usual post season funk. I have little motivation to train, especially on these damp, dark days. No sense trying to fight it. I’ll just let it run its course. I’m going to scale back my plans for the GAC Fat Ass next month. There’s no way I’ll run a 50K with the training I’ve done since Stone Cat. My longest run in the past month has been 9 miles. A 30K run for me at the Fat Ass is a more likely scenario. Lasts years frolic through the frozen forest of Palmer with KZ was the catalyst to bump up my training. I’m hoping a low key long run with friends will work its magic once again.
On another note, the first race of the snowshoe season is only three and a half weeks away but with no snow in eastern Mass I haven’t been able to take my Dion’s out for a spin. I’m sure that will change soon enough.
