Yeah, I'm still here. It seems that when I stop running, I stop blogging too. I've really barely run at all in May, except for the big races and the little Truckee Running Club races I do. My gut has been telling me to take a break, and my body has been wiling to go along with that. I think I've run only 2 or 3 times outside of racing. I'm sure I'm losing fitness and gaining weight, but eh. I'm just a little burnt, I guess. This seems to happen to me about once a year and I can't help but think that it's actually a good thing to just take a break. Just not too too long!
To that end, I think by the end of this week or the beginning of next, I'll be back at it. I have no concrete plans, but think the resumption of my running will coincide with the picking of my next race, which I do believe will be an Ultra. This choosing will probably kick me into gear, as I function much MUCH better with a training plan and a goal.
That's the plan, anyways.
I'll be back soon!
