Physical, Mental and Brags of my break. Similar to college breaks (oh right because I’m working on a college campus), I had a very long and extended time at home to figure myself out. As happy as I was at home, I’m also really really excited to be back with some of my new friends and working as well as starting a new chapter in my life.
This round of PMB (week 10??), I think I’ll highlight my some successful fun I had over break.
Physically: Physical aspects of myself…This one actually took the longest for me to write this week. Normally I can just say I’m god’s gift to the world. Physically during my break, I made myself be presentable most days of the week.
Mental: This was the easiest one for me. Being sick half of break (and having awesome plans to run high mileage) I mentally just said no. No I’m not going to run through and end up on the side of the road…why would that be fun.
Brag: I ran 5 road races over break (4 5ks, and a 20k) and I won 3, placed 2nd in one and got 3rd in another. One of the 5ks that I ran in December was only a few seconds off of my personal best time so that was exciting. I enjoyed the running I did do…would I have liked to run more? Sure, but as I say often…running is a collection of workouts versus a single week or month.
All in all I had a great break but I’m more then excited to be back. I know I bitch about the cold (because I hate it) but I’m glad to be back working again.
Question for you: What are your PMBS?
