I always do this. Start running, stop running, start running, stop running. Wouldn’t it be nice if I just kept running?
I swear I really don’t love running. I really don’t. Well, let me rephrase that. I am okay with running 2-3 miles. Long distance. It’s okay.
However, I love the races. I love the accomplishment of completing one. I HATE the training.
And I love all my running friends! #NNRC!
So, I continue to register for races if only to hang out with my running crew.
Next up on my race list is the Frederick Half Marathon on May 3. Ironically this is the race that I PR’d last year with a 2:29. And I really haven’t ran consistency since. So this should be very interesting. But I will begin training again for it.
I’m not using my coach for this one. I am using a modified Hal Higdon plan. Goal is really just to follow the plan to a tee.
This week is pretty easy
Tuesday – 3 miles
Wednesday – Cross (I will ride the Expresso bike at the gym), Ab work
Thursday – 3 miles
Friday – rest
Saturday – 40 minutes cross (again, Expresso bike)
Sunday – 4 miles.
I feel like I am starting over, and I am okay with that… baby steps..
