I continued to train after VCM and ran a few local races. Physically I felt good, mentally I was getting sick of this shit. I made it to the 4th of July ran a sub par race (had no want or will to fight) cooled down with a few friends and expressed I was tired of running. They urged me to keep going but my mind was made up.
This was essential my last run for the month, I transitioned to the gym and started lifting 4-5 days a week. I decide while on vacation to go for a run this was the worst and best thing..I struggled/deathmarched/walked and any other thing that happens when you die!
I got back finally maybe covering 4-4.5 miles layed in the grass and thought what the hell was that shit. It was at this point I realized I needed to do something, as soon as I returned to NY i decided it's time to start running again! Got in a nice run with Eric and Gavs, made the decision I'm gonna train to run shorter stuff again and put the marathon on the back burner!
