Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Lousy Run and Not Riding Enough

I don't know what the deal is but the last two runs have been horrible. Re-occurring blisters and lousy minutes per mile.

The first run, I bonked in the first quarter mile and run/walked for an additional 3.75 miles. It was an ugly 11:03 minute miles over 4 miles (Typically I run 7:45 to 8:15 minute miles).

The second run, I ran the first mile in a fast 7:12 minute mile, then bonked and run/walked the final 3 miles. It was an ugly 10:00 something minute mile overall.

Whats going on? Overall I've been feeling drained and not motivated but trying to "keep the fitness faith!"

I think, I need to enter a 5 or 10k run or some MTB race to keep me motivated.

5k in Anaheim tomorrow morning for me.

Next one for me after will be the Wet n Wild 5k in August at some water park, you "run" in waist deep water for part of it.

How did you do at Anaheim? The Wet n Wild sounds like fun. Have you thought about Mud Runs?
