Well, it's been a bit of a vacation for me from running, etc. for the last couple weeks. I simply felt like a break. I am comfortable in the fact that I will not wilt from taking a little time off and I know my body appreciates it as well. Following my last event, I needed some time away to recharge, rest, and do a little reflecting.
I am not sure what I want from my racing these days. I am still figuring it out. In the last year, I have run up and down a mountain over and over. I have done some 5K's. I have done a half marathon. I have done a full marathon. I have also contemplated a 50K. I honestly enjoying racing any and all distance. However, it can be difficult to train with such a wide variety in mind.
I am currently trying to decide on my racing schedule (tentative) for the upcoming year. As a teacher, by year, I mean September 2014 through June 2015. The only absolutes right now are a marathon somewhere and the Ridgewood Run 2015.
Over the next week or so, I am going to look online for some interesting choices (choices that fit in the family schedule as well!) and set up a schedule of sorts. I'll keep you posted.
