It happens every year, the Fall Funk. There is a period of time after my last race of the season that I’m enjoying residual fitness and doing all kinds of fun things like long hikes and exploring new trails on the mountain bike. After riding that fitness wave for some four to eight weeks, I notice a few things start to occur simultaneously:
In short, I’m in a funk. The annual Fall Funk.
It usually lasts only a couple of weeks and thankfully I’m on the back side of it now – I think.
Snow is coming tomorrow and I actually feel motivated to go to the gym and do something – anything (spin class, weights, yoga). That’s today anyway, I hope that feeling survives until tomorrow when I need to actually follow through.
The funk will pass. It always does. I look forward to a new routine with the colder weather.
How about you, do you get Fall Funk?
