Last week I took a pause on my routine.  It was my spring break, I had to travel, I went to the mountains a couple days, etc, etc.

It was good for me mentally.  I can fall into the trap of being too regimented sometimes (waking up at the same time, eating the same food, going on the same run) and every 7 or 8 weeks I need to give myself a week “off”.

My dad always told me “everything in moderation” and I really try to take this idea to heart.  Even healthy activities need to be checked every so often.  I you are incredibly intense and extreme about what you are eating or how you are working out day after day with no break, eventually you will burn out.

This week’s challenge is to get back on track.  Fall back into my routine.  I only have 3 weeks until the Grayson Highlands 50k so it’s time to get really focused!

Anyways…just checking in.  It’s good to be back!

I will have a longer post tomorrow.  I’m planning on reviewing a couple hikes I did over break.

Happy Monday!
