Wow, is it really October already? September seemed to just fly by. I pretty well took the whole month off and just enjoyed doing other things…besides training. So what have I been up to?
I ran a whopping three times, one of which was the Melissa’s 10K Road Race. And yeah…that race pretty well sucked since running felt awful. I honestly felt like I hadn’t run for a year, not just a month. On the plus side I got to meet Laurel who is just as wonderful as you would imagine!
Anyhow, I’m back on a program now so it is time to get my butt off the couch. A program for what you might be asking…
I decided that I am going to drop the half marathon part of the Goofy Challenge. I’m going to run the 5K as a warm up and train for the marathon. I’m hoping to gain some speed back and make a good attempt at a marathon PR. Right now I’m not sure how much speed is going to come back because I have slowed down a lot….but that is the goal! I am dropping swimming for the moment and I signed up for a Friday yoga class to mix things up a bit. Hopefully I can get some strength training in too.
So there we go….back on a plan!!
