Even the turtles are passing me...

I feel so slow.  I am having a ridiculously hard time getting back into the swing of things after 2 weeks off! My knees hurt (this has NEVER been an issue for me), my legs feel like lead and my times are getting slower and slower.  2 weeks & all the hard work conditioning myself that I've done over the past year and a half is out the window?  I'm back at square 1?  This really sucks.  3 weeks ago I had no doubt I could complete a half marathon distance. I felt I'd conditioned myself up to that with a reasonable amount of comfort.  Today, I'm slogging to finish 7! Please tell me I will get over this hump soon?????

And to all those running Boston this weekend...you are awesome! Enjoy!

You'll get back in your groove soon! I had to take alot of time off in december which made January but one day everything just started falling back in place. I know it's def frustrating!

It'll get better. Everyone goes through a funk from time to time.

Thanks guys..I'm really hoping it's short-lived...really want to enjoy rather than dread a run.
