Today I wasn't sure again what I wanted to do. So I went for a run outside while I decided. The purpose of the run was just to run until I needed a pit stop, then I would go home for that. Mission accomplished. Then, I grabbed the nathan and headed outside with no idea where I really wanted to go or at what speed. I wandered over to Clear Creek again and did laps by the lake.
Today, I logged 13.55 miles.
Total for my 10 day vacation: 150 miles, and a total of 39 hours spent either running or other cross training and strength.
Today was a loss mentally. See, I can't decide what I really like the most. But one of the choices, ultra-marathons, I fail at. I succeed at either marathons or half marathons with at least 2 weeks between races. But part of my brain wants to enter a 48 hour race in March. Another part wants to do 2 marathons in a weekend. Another part wants to do a 50 mile race in 3 weeks. Another part wants to keep working on strength and speed.
I'm almost 57 years old. How many 57 year olds do you know who are conflicted about what race they want to go in?
Holiday shopping? Ha! Running shoes and a slant board for sit-ups.
I love being an athlete.
