AM: 2.25 miles, breathing was hard but that's to be expected since it's my first day back and it's also higher elevation
PM: Warmups and form mile, then went for our run. It was 50%, we averaged 7:29. I had a rough time, probably because I haven't run for the past couple of days. I decided to take off a few days to see if my motivation would return, and I think it did help. I also talked to coach yesterday, he thinks it's because I haven't been seeing success lately. He told me to think about how my motivation would be if I were to run a 5:00 mile. I realized that then I would be a lot happier with running and it wouldn't feel like a chore anymore. He also told me to think back to my freshman year of high school, was running much fun then? It wasn't and I almost quit. I'm in the same situation here, but like back then deep down I know I will never quit because deep down I really do love it too much to let it go. So I've just got to endure through the tough times and eventually I will see results. Patience is key, I know my motivation will come back.
