I did not go spectate at Rock and Roll yesterday. Being at the expo Saturday made me sad and I did not think being at the race would be good for my inner being since I have been so down on myself as it is lately. And as it turns out, I was up half the night with a raging headache and woke up feeling like poo. I am feeling better now but I am taking it as a sign that resting my body was a good idea. For the record, not racing still sucks.
Before I get into my plans for a fresh start, I would like to give a huge shout out to my friend Jen who finished R&R with an awesome time and since it was her first, it is an automatic PR! Woo-hoo! Additionally, huge props go out to all my teammates who participated in Syracuse 70.3- there was a huge bunch of them…I have been randomly checking in on them and they are all doing awesome- way to represent TT!!!
Here’s the plan: the plan is, there is no plan. That’s right. No plan. Other than the fact that Iwill be progressing in run mileage in preparation for the Philly half, I have no need for a plan. Therefore it’ll work a little something like this…when I want to swim, I will swim. When I want to bike, I will bike. Lifting? Yeah, if I want to. The new goal is to keep up with my running and workout a total of five days a week. And for now, that is it.
The plan that isn’t a plan started today. I swam. For the first time all year, I swam just to swim. No plan, no equipement, no timed laps…just 35 minutes of freestyle swimming. And it was wonderful 🙂 I feel absolutely rejuventated and ready to get back into the swing of things!
PS- I finally(!!!) updated my sidebar 🙂
