For the past SEVERAL months, I have devoted my life to training for a mini-marathon. I lift 4 days a week, kickbox 2 nights a week, two treadmill runs a week, a longer run somewhere in there, and then cross-train by riding the bike other days. The mini is approaching (about 4 weeks) and I'm starting to get down. It's not even here yet, but after the mini, what do I do? I've never been so motivated and driven to finish something like what I am attempting. And I say attempt because this will be my longest run EVER! I don't see myself doing a marathon (at least not running it). But the question lingers, what will I devote myself to afterwards?
Maybe my brain is just down from having Spring Break. I feel like sometimes breaks are extremes for me. I go from working at school to doing nothing...then back. I don't like the pendulum swing of full activity to none. Do other teachers or people in general find vacations hard to get used to? Or is it just me? And for those who comment, I'm okay with it being just me. Just curious.
