Now it doesn't matter if I roll out of bed at 5 am or 7 am. The excitement of homeschool and errands will be there regardless. Not that they aren't when I am training, but if I'm not showered and ready for the day by 7ish, it's pretty much a circus for the rest of the day. True confessions - I'm in jammies as I type this, and Ella and Hank are in the schoolroom body slamming each other as they do their Latin warm up drills.
I'd like to also pick another race, even if it's months away, so I have a goal to work towards. The inaugural Frederick 10 Miler is about a month away and I'm tossing that one around in my mind. Otherwise I'll wait until late January for the Lewis Memorial 10 Miler (which is also insanely hilly).
Though I have to admit that it's kind of nice to wake up and not have a run requirement hanging over my head. I feel like I'm in limbo - want to run, probably shouldn't, don't have to run, enjoying the break, but not really.
I think tomorrow I'll do a little strength training just because.
