I’m still here. I’ve started a few posts over the past week, but deleted them because I haven’t had a whole lot of running news to post and this is a running blog. So what have I been up to the past couple of weeks?
- I abandoned my training plan for the Frozen Half. I wasn’t in to it. I was having a hard time dragging myself out of bed to run what was on the plan. Then I was feeling guilty that I didn’t run. And I was irritated that I was feeling guilty about a half marathon that I don’t even care about. So I stopped “training” for it.
- I had a very low mileage couple of weeks. 13 miles 2 weeks ago. 18 miles last week. A little biking mixed in. Lots of eating and drinking mixed in.
- I have completely abandoned the pilates thing. It also felt like a chore to do it.
Even though my numbers were low last week, it was a great week because I returned to running for me. Because I’ve been stressed and I needed to take some me time. Because running clears my head and makes me feel better about myself and life. Because running is what I like to do. So I may still run the Frozen Half, but if I do it will just be for fun, not a “goal race.”
