I've been a bit off for the past few days, both emotionally and now physically. It happens, and I don't have to like it, but I do have to accept it. And I'll have to jump straight back into my training when I get better.
As for right now, I can't even think of what to blog about. I've started this post over three times! Some would say to just give up, but I prefer to ramble. It makes me feel better. So here are a few random things going through my head right now:
Hubby left on Sunday for a work trip back to GA. He's home this evening, but it put us all back in that place that we were a few months ago, and there's been an air of sadness to the house. I've not pushed myself to work out, and I missed my long run on Sunday trying to get more time with him. Now I feel like a piggy sloth! Top it off with dizziness and bathroom issues, and it appears I'm getting a little bug that's going around. Let's hope I can fight it off quickly!
I'm wavering on marathon training. I have a lot going on with my Spartans and PT certification and reopening the Etsy store, and I don't know that I really WANT to add in those extra hours for just running. I'm thinking of cutting the marathon and doing more half marathons, faster. Honestly, the biggest reason I'm having a hard time giving it up is because I don't want to appear "weak". I know that I can do it all and come out even more of a hoss, but I don't know that it sounds super fun right now. So my new goal will probably be a fall full of obstacle races and lots of half marathons. I'll probably do 15-milers on the weekend, but no more. I don't even know that I'll cut down on weekday miles, I just won't add on to them. Instead of adding that time running, it will be for strength and/or yoga and Pilates classes. I think I'll feel much more well-rounded!
That's all I've got right now, as I need to get my act together and get these kids to storytime. Let's hope that I have it in me to give them an awesome day, and that hubby is home safely (he's driving as I type)!!!
