If you've followed me for any length of time, you know I love The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and all their fun, crazy challenges. We are into week 4? of the May Your Way challenge, where we got to set our own goals and whatnot. I'm totally suffering from an extreme case of Fitbloggin Withdrawal. Seriously, I'm ready to submit my symptoms to the DSM-IV people and see if we can get it as an official diagnosis when the DSM-V comes out in 2013. I think this is why I haven't been able to write a recap yet. Recapping the weekend would mean it is really over. So sad.
In any case, I need to report how I am doing on my goals. Make that goal - singular. My goal for the challenge was to get through my 3 races uninjured. Well, I'm 2 for 3 with my final race coming up on Saturday. I felt really good after the 5k and I have no doubt I'll finish my 3rd race. I was hoping for a 10 mile PR, but now I just want to have fun and finish it. Enjoy running in Chicago along the lakeshore. KWIM? You can read about my 25k here and see how cute I looked in my tutu (if I do say so myself) for the Fitbloggin 5k here (I'm the one in green). Next week I'll be reporting on how the Soldier Field 10 Mile goes. I haven't run much this week - only 2 miles actually, because I'm really tired and my heart hasn't been in it. I was talking with one of my IRL girlfriends and she says this is what overtraining feels like. I think I'm going to take a bit of a break after this weekend and let my body and mind heal.
As for the mantras and all that other stuff - like I said, I'm feeling a bit of burnout and withdrawal. I WILL get my mojo back. No question about that. Maybe this week I'll even get a Fitbloggin post written. Maybe.
How about you? Did you attend Fitbloggin and if you did, did I get to meet you? Please remind me because I met so many amazing women and men last weekend.
PS-I just added Intense Debate for comments, so let me know what you think. M'Kay? I love that I can now comment back to you all.
