Have you ever found yourself in a deep running funk?

Not the kind where you skip a speed workout for an easy run, but the kind where day after day, week after week, you can’t get yourself out the door.

These unmotivated, discouraging, pitiful funks can happen to anyone, and I’ve spent that past few months fighting back the downward spiral.

In today’s episode of Real Talk with Doug Hay, aka Trail Talk, I share why I’ve only run a handful of miles the past several weeks, and what I plan to do about it moving forward.

It may be just what you need to hear to break out of your current (or future) running funk.
