Well, with week 9 looming tomorrow, I have a few worries, and surprisingly none of them are about the length of the run. You see, I accidentally did a week nine run yesterday, so I know I can do it. My worry is this: what next? I've always been very task oriented, which can be good in one way but has always been my downfall. When I was a few years younger, I decided I liked martial arts, so I graded in several weapons, got my black belt in karate and realised it didn't change ME. Ok, so in essence, I'd reach the top of the mountain and had nowhere to go. I'd conquered the task. It took me four years, a few injuries, a hell of a lot of growing up, but I did it, and deserved the black bit of fabric around my waist. But I didn't know where to go after that. I'd beaten my 'mountain'. And then, I quit. I didn't know where to go after that.
And now, I'm staring that in the face again. I've loved this program, the entire thing about basically doing an interval training program, having no one to answer to but me, but what do I do after reaching the end of next week? I know I could do bridge to ten k, (I keep seeing the name JuJu when this is mentioned, whoever that is) but I know there is a hell of a lot of apps out there to get me to ten k. Which do I pick, how often do I run?
Which mountain to I get in my sights and decide to humble at my feet?
