Nothing to train for
Take a break. I dare you. I double dog dare you. After the Blue Ridge Half, I had brief thoughts of signing up for another race right away. Then I thought about changing my fall plans.
Then I realized that I need to run just to run. 4 miles. 6 miles. 2 miles. On a trail. Just whatever I feel like at whatever pace I feel like.
I have two races on my 2013 calendar right now. The first is 6 months from now.
That will change, I'm 99.9% sure of that. I'm not in a rush, though, to sign up for a race and go for a goal.
It's a nice free state to be in. It's something that can change overnight if I want to.
Like I said, try it sometime ...
