I think I’m feeling a bit of post race blues. I didn’t run yesterday, but not because I felt in any way like I couldn’t. My legs were a bit tired, but not at all sore. I spent three hours with Shoo and a classmate walking around the (very hilly) National Zoo with no issues.
So, yeah, physically I feel fine.
Mentally? I feel lost.
I’ve had a big year so far.
5 half marathons in five days? Check
Girls’ weekend half marathon? Check
Working Nike Women Half Marathon? Check
Rock the Frederick Running Festival races? Check
And boom! I’m done.
Don’t get me wrong. I have big future goals:
- 6 more half marathons in 2013 for a total of 13 (but none are actually paid for/scheduled)
- Another 5 in 5 in spring of 2014 (but no info is available for me to obsess about yet)
- Going for Venus status in Half Fanatics in 2014 with the 13 halves in 79 days option (not a lot of info for spring 2014 out there yet to even see if this is possible without major travel)
But I have nothing concrete on the calendar and nothing even “potential” until October. I don’t like it and for the moment I’m feeling lost and in need of a goal.
Perhaps I should make a goal to actually clean my house…
What goals are you working on? What do you do when you are between “big things”?
