A great race!
If I’m missing any other races - my apologies. Hope that your race is great too!
I’ve got a 3.5 mile run in the morning and then a 90 minute Crossfit foundations class.
The run will be good. I’m doing the 30 week, über slow, Higdon novice marathon supreme program. Why? I’ve got no base right now and I’m in no rush. In some regards it seems painfully slow (and by slow I mean how the mileage increases)).
But seriously, what’s my rush? I’ve got no races planned and I want to take my time and keep this temple healthy.
And then there crossfit. It still intimidates me but it’s largely my ego. I’m amazingly weak at this point in my life. If I were wired differently I’d probably be angry about it. When I think about the amount of weight I could squat, bench, press, or curl in the past and how little I can do right now - it could do a number on the mind.
But that was a long time ago. I don’t need to be first. I just need to be the best me that I can be. And I need to be consistent and have some discipline, which is an area that always trips me up.
Push-ups are rough now. As are burpees. And yeah, pull-ups are likely not happening for a while. But that’s ok. I’ve been tracking my food and physical activity for months now and finally have a clue.
So yeah. This is all good.
