Wow, where does the time go – Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. For the first time in a few years we are going to have a pretty quiet summer racing wise. I’m actually looking forward to the break. I ran a PW (Personal Worst) half marathon a few weeks ago and it was the first time in a long time I was counting miles early on – never a good thing. I just wasn’t where I needed to be mentally and I knew it before, during and after the race. A break from racing doesn’t mean a break from training though. I’m looking forward to just running without the pressure of a race or a particular mileage goal per week. I also plan on more time on the bike and more time with weights – I need a reboot and quite honestly racing without Tamara (still dealing with her IT Band issue) just isn’t as much fun for either one of us.
We just got back from a week in Maine and spent a few days in Ogunquit. If you are ever in that area you need to go there so beautiful! I managed to get a short 4 mile scenic run in one of the mornings on Marginal Way. It is a beautiful paved path along the coast with vistas of rocks and water, just beautiful!
