What do we do when we fall off the horse...

We get back on!

Did y'all think you could get rid of me that easy?  One bad race (well, in my case about 2 years of bad races!) and I would quit blogging?!  Naw....

Truth be told, I've just been super busy.  Finishing up my first year of teaching (including writing, giving, and grading final exams!), working more hours at the bakery, plus, of course running.  I only have one more 'checkout' day of teaching and then I'm free from one job for the summer!  Woo hooo!

The running has been...going.  I'm taking a break from 'training' for a few weeks here, but not 'running.'  I think of training as basically what I've been doing for most of the last year - having a plan and specific runs, and following through.  I'm not at all burned out of this type of running, but I just thought it would be a good time to mix it up for a few weeks.  I am running.  Not too crazy of milage, but once or twice a day (sometimes three! :) Those are the really good days!  I've been feeling pretty run-down lately, since the marathon so I'm going to try to get in to the docs soon to see what is up.  Running  has felt hard more days than easy, and I feel like I have to work much harder to get paces in the 7:40s even for short runs, which was easy pre-Bayshore. 

Anyway, enough of my rambling.  I just wanted to pop in a say 'hi!'  I'm actually off to meet Mike for a run in storm-like conditions.  Bummer, as I already got rained on on my 4am run this morning before work. 

And I'm off! :)

  1. probably a good thing to take a break from training. you're probably like me: i try too hard sometimes and a mini-vaca from pressure is what i need. glad to hear that your still running though :)
