My running has taken on a dullness post-PDTR that is more dull than usual this time of years. (While I love running in the snow, I do find it hard to stay motivated during the winter.)
The 50-mile failure, plus the Morton’s neuroma, plus an inexplicable pain in my left foot that took a week to resolve, plus several days of flu-like symptoms, plus the cold and dark have made for many short runs and many days with no running at all. I set a goal of running 1000 miles in 2013 and I’m right where I should be to meet that goal, IF I complete my normal runs. I plan to do that, of course, but it feels really hard at the moment.
