Weekly Wishes: Post-Marathon Recoveryfeatured

Weekly Wishes {the ponytail diaries}

I’m linking up with Melyssa at Nectar Collective today to share my wishes/goals for next week. Join in!

The marathon is over, and my PR still starts with a 4. And, barring a couple miracles, it’s gonna stay that way. It started great — at the last minute, I decided to stay with the 4:00 pace group, which was a fantastic decision. But around miles 16-18, my legs started to feel like they were going to fall off, and by mile 20, they were ready to full-on mutiny. I dropped off the from the group around mile 21.5 and it was a miserable struggle-fest to the finish. I actually got through it in part by telling myself, “Once you finish, you never have to do this again.”

So there’s that.

Also, not only did my parents fly down, my uncle and cousin came to watch from Orange County too. So that was pretty cool.

Last Week’s Wishes

01 | prep to switch the self-hosting
Sort of.

02 | finish editorial calendar for January and get started on February
Almost! January’s mostly figured out and I have a bunch of ideas for posts that need to get scheduled.

03 | start Article Writing Masterclass and stay current with the sessions
Yep.

04 | at least 4 green smoothies
Um, one. Whoops.


This Week’s Wishes

01 | switch to self-hosting

02 | take Onyx on some runs
Poor thing has barely gone on any runs for the past two weeks because of my stupid taper. And she desperately needs to get out and burn some energy. My legs are still kinda mad at me, so this may wait until the end of the week.

03 | work on my portfolio
Now that I actually have clips (!!!) that are stored on my computer, I need to get them uploaded and looking all good on my website.

What are your goals for this week??
