Tuesday Thoughts ~~ Lost My Mojo

Good morning folks!!

Can you believe that it's the first of April already??

I hope that your week is going well so far.

I have a confession to make to you: I still haven't tried to run. I keep saying that I'm ready but when it comes down to it, I'm scared! It's been a month--what if I can't do it? What if I still hurt??  They say running is 90 % mental and I really do believe that now! Something has happened to me in the past 3 months. I'm not sure what, I've allowed so much fear and self doubt to creep back in. I've lost my confidence and running mojo. I don't know how I'm going to find it again. I'm not really sure how to move past the fear and doubt. I've tried to embrace weight lifting and cross training, but I'm not getting the sense of satisfaction that I get from running and I miss that. I need it!! Is today the day I start to overcome the demons? I don't know. We'll see. I'm taking running clothes to work with me and I'm going to hope for the best!

Until next time--get up, get out, get moving and be awesome today!!

Your friend,


Any suggestions on overcoming a running injury??


  1. I totally understand the nervousness...but I am sending you good thoughts and hope you get out there for a great run today!!

  2. Oh man, the mental part of running is nuts. Always trying to overcome any little ache for fear my Plantars Faciitis will come back. Just get out there and take it slow. I think that is important when coming back....don't try to be your fastest at first. Good luck.

  3. That dang mojo!! Sometimes it's so hard to find! I think all runners have been there. Hang in there! It will come back!

  4. its so mental, and it's so easy to talk yourself out of it. try slow and short and see how it goes.
