I wrote that title into a draft over a week ago. What happened?
Life. Is. Busy. I’m so tired of making that excuse, but there it is. Wife. Mom. Librarian. Grad student. Runner. All those titles pile up on top of me. Don’t get me wrong…I like to be busy, but lately it feels like I’m just a walking to do list with little room left for anything else.
It’s also starting to get cold, and I definitely tend to get winter depression syndrome. It just seems to be happening really early this year.
So what’s been going on…
I PR’d everything in a 6 day period.
The asterick is because I unofficially PR’d my 10K during my sub-2 half marathon attempt at Prairie Fire. I won’t count it in my PR list, but it exists in my head.
Mr. Neon and I were again selected to be on the BASE Performance team. New kits…pink and turquoise! I’m super excited. We’ve started tentatively planning out our 2018 season. I’m still planning on sticking to a lower number of races and working on building my speed for another sub-2 half marathon attempt next fall.
I survived back-to-back class weekends, and now we have XC regionals and nationals to look forward to. Never a dull moment around the Neon Runner house.
I’ve decided to set a few goals for November:
- 10,000 steps every day. I sit more and more at work. I started a maintenance 10K finish it plan, and I only run 4-5 days a week. I think I’ll be spending some time walking on my treadmill in the evenings after dinner.
- No more excuses. I like to make excuses for everything. And I need to stop. No more negative Nancy.
- Get the snacking under control and eliminate dinner #2. I have a goal weight in mind and it’s going to take some more.
That’s all from me today! Stay neon!
