In a bad mood?
It probably has to do with fear.
Maybe evaluating if that fear is founded will help your mood.
Im in a bad mood.
Planned a long run.
Stopped 1/3 of the way through it
Stomach cramps, boredom, lack of motivation and just too dam cold out
Now I’m in a bad mood and I just can’t shake it.
So what are my fears behind my bad mood? Are they founded?
I have lost all motivation to be fit … ever
(This does not fit with my personality or behavior over the past two decades)
Conclusion: Fear # 1 unfounded
Fear # 2:
I will become overweight
(By missing one run? Likely not given the above reality)
Conclusion: Fear # 2 unfounded
Fear # 3:
I will not be ready for my marathon in May
(I have 3 months, Ill probably be fine)
Conclusion: Fear # 3 unfounded
Fear # 4
People will think Im lazy
(Who? No. No one cares)
Conclusion: Fear # 4unfounded
Fear # 5:
I will be in a foul mood all weekend since I don’t have time to work out
(Hmmmm … possibly true
Conclusion: Fear # 5 unfounded as fear is contingent on prior fears which are unfounded
So … Basically I just need to get over it.
