We're now about a month out of completing the Leanhorse 100 and I feel like a big blob of crap. I've let myself rest (or at least, convinced myself it's rest under the guise of laziness...) and indulged in the things I stayed away from while training for 9 months.
This includes (but is not limited to):
- More beer
- Ice cream
At this moment, the idea of running 100 miles again feels like an impossible task. I'm sore from a 7-mile run I did on Sunday....how in heaven's name would I run 100?!? Funny how perspective changes with just a few pounds and less focus.
Believe me, I'm not worried about it...this happens every year once I achieve my "A-race" goal. I let myself go a bit until I figure out the next big thing. This one is just taking a little longer...
I'll continue to run and cycle a bit but the mileage is definitely not what it once was.
I'm signed up to volunteer at a couple races here in the next couple months - I'm looking forward to that change of pace and a little running karma. I still don't know what the future holds for me...
...but I'm enjoying trying to figure it out.
