(42) My lowest mileage week since before Boston.
All in all it was a true adventure, much needed breathing time. Everything didn't go as planned, not in the least but made the best out of it. Grateful for some awesome friends/family members who kept me sane, tried to help with all of the travel issues, and generally just support me in everything that I do. I was incredibly glad to have this chance to spend time getting to know someone who due to distance, cannot see often. I saw new places, met new faces, and was left with so much to ponder: I'm pretty sure we can call that a successful trip :)
As for training last week, I think the lower mileage wasn't the worst thing. I have a really strong base from the last 9 weeks, I have NEVER ever been this consistent with my training. I feel like last week was a great time to step back a bit both mentally and physically as I prepare to start taking leaps in the future. I've been really doing things differently this time around and now it's time to stop letting fear and comfort zones hold me back from trying even MORE. You don't have to have it all figured out to move forward, I'm currently relating this to life AND training. Here goes everything.
