Taking a breather

It's been about 2 weeks now since the Mermaid Race and I still haven't actually gone out on a run. But in all honesty - I'm OK with that. I realized that I've been in "training mode" since June and that basically means 8 months of feeling worried/guilty that I'm not getting enough runs in. So now that I have nothing on the horizon, I can finally breathe a little.

And although it's tempting to start looking for new races, I'm really trying to just enjoy cross training for the time being. Between 4 runs a week and teaching 3 classes a week, there's no way I was going to get any other type of workout in. But now that I'm not stressing about running, I'm looking forward to some good strength training and yoga/pilates classes.

I'd still like to do a marathon, but I'm adjusting my goals to focus on it for early 2014. Maybe the LA? So I think I'll try to do another half or two around October/November to lead me into training for the full, but for the time being - running, well at least, intense running, and I are seeing other people :)

Here's the workout I did with my boot camp class last night:

Have a good one!
