It’s the only thing I want to do right now.
While I’ve made it to my mat four times in the last two and a half weeks, I’m mostly avoiding it. I shared with my class tonight all the things that my practice is bringing up for me. I’m just not ready yet.
And while I set intentions to get to the gym to lift more this week, I’ve made it…zero times.
My alarm is set for 4:30 a.m. tomorrow morning to run before I teach at 6 a.m. I can’t wait. I’m getting my hair cut and colored at 10 and I also teach at 8:15 a.m. So if I want to soak up the amazingness of a fresh cut and color and not ruin it with working out later in the day, my only option is early morning workout. (Today was a rest day…I thought would lift but then I just couldn’t get myself there.) Tell me I’m not the only one who milks a blow out for as many days as possible. 😉
I’m so excited to run in the morning darkness with Zoey and 57 degree temperatures.
Which leads me to my next running related thought…
I can’t stop thinking about registering for the Kiawah Marathon. One of my friends told me yesterday she’s registered for the half and just the day before we had this conversation I was casually Googling December and January marathons and considering Kiawah.
I swore I would never (ever, ever, ever) do it again but with how good running has been feeling this fall combined with my overwhelming desire to run, run and run some more, I am extremely tempted.
Current plan is to attempt a couple of runs in the 15-16 mile range and see how it feels while also seeking out some consistent chiropractic/active release care combined with the massage I’m already doing to see if it’s doable for my body.
Tell me I’m crazy. (Mom.)
Tell me to go for it. (Anyone.)
Totally related note…have you ever run a flat course half or full marathon? Can you please share your experience if so? Kiawah is flat as a pancake and known for being fast but I’m nervous because I’m used to Charlotte’s hills and as I’ve shared before, I like the up and down.
Speaking of running, I put together this playlist for last Sunday’s race and I’ve been listening to it on my runs this week. I love.
I make all of my yoga and running playlists available publicly on Spotify so be sure to follow me there for new music inspiration.
Marathon…a go or no?
Flat course experience? Please share.
Any new favorite running songs? (Or share your Spotify playlists…please!)
