Bundle of Nerves

So many things on my mind lately and it’s stressing me out.

I just joined the running club at school and there’s a regional cross country meet for all collegiate running clubs in the northeast. I miss running in meets so much and would be so upset with myself if I didn’t do it. The thing is, the other runners in the club are really fast and I don’t want to be the last one coming in on runs… which shouldn’t bother me at all. But it does. My goal is to at least go on Thursday for the early practice. If I completely suck, at least I know I tried!

I’m also nervous about the fact that I signed up for three half marathons.. in three months. I can treat one or two of them as training runs, but I would like to do really well in at least one.

I also take back what I said about not incorporating speed. Speedwork might just take over my life in the next few weeks. I’m going to take it easy to avoid injury, but it will be lifting that it’ll be on the back burner, at least until the end of October.

Among other things…

In other news, I went to kundalini yoga (again) by accident. I wanted a powerful/vinyasa-y class and ended up in kundalini again! I actually liked it, but it wasn’t what I was feeling for today. The gym keeps listing the yoga classes as “vinyasa flow” and the instructor keeps showing up doing kundalini. Not fun.

I’m going to avoid all forms of “vinyasa” and just go to a power yoga class.

I also spent some time in a high school today, was mistaken for a (high school) sophomore. At least I know I still got it 😉
