Baby Steps.....that's what it takes.....

Thanks everyone for such kind thoughts and words.
I think I have started to wrap my mind around my problem...and it's not a busy schedule....the schedule just becomes the excuse.
I have post traumatic race disorder.....and that is an "official" diagnosis
Thinking about the half consumed me....I gave up every other type of exercise to train...so as to not injure anything....I tracked and planned and ran and ran and ran.....and then I raced. I raced OK, but I raced....now ----
No plan, no race, nothing to work towards......I have post race let down.
So - I have to find something - if even small to work towards.
Insanity does not seem to be what is calling me. I miss running....so - I found a small 5K this coming Saturday, and that is my first goal...I will run that.
I will do two training runs this week on Tuesday and Wednesday, and if feeling great on Thursday too....then take Friday off and race on Saturday.
That is my short term goal....long term.....don't know yet...but just have to go small....can't plan too far or make too many promises.
I do need to close my mouth - and the fact that the halloween candy is just about out of the house - this should be easier....
So - small goal - 5K this weekend, with what I hope will be a below 30 time.....I want to have an official sub 30 5K....
