So I have officially decided to not run the Philadelphia marathon. I have canceled hotel plans and everything. My heart just isnt in it and that is just asking for an injury to happen. Was I a little too optimistic going into marathon training 6 months postpartum? Probually. But this is where we are now.
So where are we?
In two weeks I run the Bird in Hand Half Marathon (totally 100% excited about the entire weekend!) and then what? Well of course I have that planned out too... I am a massive planner after all. And I am very excited about my "plan". I plan to back off to 5-7 miles twice a week, sometimes adding some speed work. Then fill the rest of the week up with spin, body pump, yoga, insanity with hubby and maybe even getting a trainer again and try to learn to really swim (and breathe). Im going to focus on the activities I enjoy. Im going to focus on getting leaner, stronger, healthier.
I feel 100% confident in my decision. Im not QUITTING any thing - Im re-prioritizing life.
