I ain’t sayin’ I’m a goal digger

October 13, 2015

Tune in today to see if she can … find a new light. 

I feel obligated to report that, though the free time and flexibility are great, I seem to be experiencing a bit of a half marathon adrenaline hangover. Like I got dropped from a 10-story-building high and went splat on the pavement of normalcy. Like, the pain and fatigue were drawing me in over the 12 weeks of training; quietly clenching and claiming parts of my brain. It’s like I’ve been temporarily reprogrammed to savor sweat and relish sweet soreness. Who am I? No, but seriously … who am I?

So, I guess the conclusion is, I need a new challenge. What should I do? I definitely want to start hitting some classes at the gym again because, you know, this and this worked out so well for me. But I have arrived at the undeniable truth that I am a goal junkie. I need to know what I’m working toward. I know lifelong wellness is a journey, and it shouldn’t be a “diet” and all that jazz, but this mama needs a light for her tunnel. (That sounds weird.)


So, let’s go dream goal shopping, shall we? What cool things are out there to try?

    1) Do a full! 26.2 is calling your name!
    2) Enter a body building competition (Mrs. BSU)
    3) learn to do that yoga pose where you hold yourself up on 2 hands with your legs over your elbows.
    4) If “mini” is more your thing…a mini triathlon!

    That’s all I’ve got. 🙂

    ^^^ i second Ashlie’s suggestions! and i totally agree with the “need a goal”. pay a reg fee, and i’ll run a marathon. no such deadline, and i’m couch-bound. so – let me know what you’re thinking!!! i’m down for some training 🙂
