Where has it gone,  AGAIN?!

I shared with you during my taper for London, that I felt like I’d lost my mojo, but blamed taper madness. The London Marathon was TWO weeks ago, and since then I’ve completed ONE run! So I’m thinking it may have gone MIA (Missing In Action) AGAIN. Due to LOTS walking during the marathon, I can’t say I have really suffered with DOMS, so that can’t be the reason, but it have felt physically shattered.

Watching Katie at Milton Keynes Marathon, along with following Twitter today, with everyone running Hackney half, and lots of #TeamMND running a half in Hereford today, I have been jealous! I do want to be running, but I don’t seem to get my lazy backside out the door! Oh, I have entered my name into the London Marathon ballot, but I could do that from the comfort of my sofa!

I’ve decided that I want to try to improve my running form, so have been researching like crazy to find information. I’ve tried some yoga that @floralcrown from @ukrunchat suggested, which I really enjoyed. I’ve read and re-read kinetic revolution website about form, yet still feel baffled about where to start! I thought about do C25K to really take the time to build up, with better form and a mid foot strike, but then I start worrying about which days I do the yoga? which days I do strength work? Stretching? Hills? Drills? Am I just creating excuses? 

Would a Dinosaur chasing me help???

I dislike feeling so lethargic and tired all the time. Things have been quite hectic with work of late, so I’m hoping as soon as it calms down, my mojo will return and I’ll be back smashing PBs all over the place!

I hope everyone else’s running is going well, and if you do have any advice, motivation or can give me a virtual kick out the door, feel free to leave me a message.

An average runner that has found a passion for running and raising money/awareness for MNDA. I have completed London, New York, and Chicago marathons. I am tempted to go for the Six-Star finishers medal, running all the World Marathon Majors, but that's a dream in progress.

The mojo will return. It goes MIA for everyone once in a while, especially after a marathon! I tried to become a forefoot runner a couple of years ago but instead of focusing on landing on my forefoot, I’ve just learned that I run faster when I just focus on taking smaller steps. This way I heel strike less naturally and counting my steps (I try to do about 3 a second) is very zen 🙂
