Taking a Break
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been kind of MIA around here. The move really took it out of me and I’m still re-adjusting to life (and my longer commute, BOO!) With that, there has been little to no running.
Yesterday I attempted a run.
It ended abruptly at about .30 miles when I tripped and fell on the trail, twisting my ankle. It’s still a bit sore today …and I’ve sworn off trails for the time being 🙂
I’m downsizing my running goals. While the half marathon was fun to train for, it was mentally draining planning and running all the time. I want to be running for FUN. Because I WANT to. Not because my excel spreadsheet is telling me too. That being said, I DID sign up for The Great Race, but I’m currently trying to sell my bib. I know I won’t be able to run it …I’m way out of shape, and my heart is not into it right now.
I know I’ll get back into running soon, but for now I’m taking a much needed break so that I don’t burn out. I think I’ll experiment with cross-training, some work out DVD’s and quick, short runs.
I did happen across a new lust of mine.
UGH. Why did I walk into Lululemon? This jacket is everything I wish my Nike one was. It’s 100 bucks …and I’ve already got a fund set up for it (half way there baby!) I feel like I can’t justify it having just moved to a new apartment and hello, bills?!?! But it’s so freaking cute, it makes me look super slim and I KNOW I’d get so much use out of it. Plus, the thumbholes. I love to wear my hoodies and long sleeves over my hands at work …don’t ask me why I just do. We shall see! I LOVE the color but I feel like I should get something more practical?
Anyways, that’s it from me. You might hear from me soon, maybe later. Depends when the running high comes back (hopefully soon!)
