Many mixed emotions again this past week.Monday through Friday felt so sluggish. Four days is my life goal, but I really do prefer to more active if I can. Being in motion is what makes everything else okay for me. I am tired of resting so much, but my body continued to yell for it all week.
I could have cross trained more, but I just wasn't motivated enough.
Saturday I was finally feeling a little better, so I did what any sane person would do...crammed as much as I could into a day. I went for a walk in the morning because it was almost 70 degrees! My intention was to take it easy because I knew I had my Tacky Light Run at 6 p.m. I went by run buddy's house and we ended running five miles and walking. The sun and warmth felt delightful, and it wasn't the reason I struggled toward the end of our run, my endurance was. I had only run one 5K all week, so I was thrilled even though, I had some challenging moments.
Saturday evening I headed out for my fun run. 4,600 people registered and they took a lot of walk ups, it is a bit crazy, but I enjoyed it.
I hope the holiday hustle and bustle isn't wearing you out!
Anyone have yearly goals you are trying to make?Anyone else ready to start looking forward?
