I was telling some of my fellow fit campers the other day that I felt like I was in mourning after finishing my half marathon. After I was finished it seemed so anti-climatic. I never really got a runner's high while I was running.
It was like all that time training and now it's OVER. And it wasn't even all that fun. It was a lot of hard work! But I guess that's really what it was all about right? Pushing myself to do something outside my comfort zone. Just a BIT farther than I thought I could go.
I've been taking this week off from doing any strenuous exercising. Nothing "scheduled". It's kind of nice! I have walked every day on my lunch hour and pulled some weeds after work one day but that's it.
Next week I have a new plan. It should be fun! Back to running three days a week (although much shorter distances) and the gym 2. I also need to spend some time training on my bike since we have that big Monster Ride coming up. That's definitely
a bit a LOT outside my comfort zone.
Here's to pushing ourselves a bit farther than we think we can go and still being able to walk afterwards ;)
