Another week has come and gone and another week where I’ve been fighting my inner motivation.  I’m happy that I’ve been able to maintain decent workouts and mileage but I’m hoping after this weekend’s race I’ll find my inner spark again.   Regardless of my missing motivation, my lack of long run, I’ve listened to my body, I’ve re-introduced yoga… Read more »
