Running: The Hills (Part 2)

It's been about a week since my last run.  I ran 4.5 miles on the 15th, went rock climbing on the 16th and went for a hike on the 17th.  The rest of this past week I had super low motivation and low energy...I just couldn't get myself out the door for a run.  The rain didn't help.  I think the ongoing mild vertigo that I've been experiencing has had something to do with my lack of motivation.  While I haven't felt particularly sick I just haven't felt 100%.  Fortunately I'm pretty sure that I found the cause of the vertigo and have taken steps to eliminate it from my life...I should start feeling a noticeable difference in the coming days. 

Out of complete guilt I forced myself to get up and run this morning.  I decided to do the 4.5 mile loop again but in the opposite direction as last time.  TOTALLY KICKED MY ASS!  Taking a week off plus just not feeling that great made it a tough and slow run this morning.
