Running: The ups and the downs

I've been having a sad few weeks of running. Every run I go on is a struggle - even though we're talking about 30-minute runs. I ran a 10K at the beginning of May in 55 minutes, but since then I just can't seem to get into it, and neither can my lungs.

Admittedly I have allergies right now, and perhaps a touch of asthma. So I shouldn't expect to be at my best. But I'm finding it a struggle that's accumulating. With every unhappy run, I'm less eager to get out for the next one. And even though I'm supposed to be increasing mileage right now for a race that's coming up in just over a month, I haven't gone over 5K since my last race.

Any advice? I feel like I've lost my love of running!
