I’ve Got Goals!

I’ve been super quiet lately.   For many reasons.  Anxiety was getting the best of me.   I needed to take care of me and adding anything else to my plate would definitely push me over the edge.  After a lot of soul searching and a ton of support from my family, I feel like the anxiety piece is becoming better managed.  (a future post on that) 

 

I’m definitely going to take the plunge and run my first ultra.  There’s a 50k this fall that works perfectly with my schedule – meaning, I can do a bulk of the training this summer.  It’s the Firebird 50k.  Check it out here!
I was waiting to make sure I had a few solid weeks of ultra training under my belt and a good feeling about them to make the announcement.  So here it is.   It’s not going to be fast.  It’s going to take a long time.  But it’s only about getting it done and completing my first 50k!
This past weekend I had 10 and 12 mile runs back-to-back.   I was a little nervous about them going into the weekend, but I was like oh heck no, I’ve got this!!!
And you know what?  I did it!  And my legs feel great!    Could I really be back on my training track?  I sure hope so!
And I know there will be much more of this in my future as the mileage keeps creeping up and up.
What goals do you have right now?  I’d like to hear!!!
