That tri was totally rad and even though I didn’t train all that much for it (which became very clear during the swim… ha..), I’m ready to focus on just running for a while. I love running. It’s my go-to, my self-therapy, my favorite part of my mornings. And I’m ready to get back in the groove of running full time again.
Oh yeah, that and I’m running the Denver marathon in a little over 16 weeks. Most training plans (my fav, Hal Higdon’s) plans for 18 weeks of training. I’ve been running a handful of times a week, but Weez and I are ready to buckle down and start training full time again.
I say “full time” instead of a number of days a week, because in my mind, going for a 6-12 hour hike up one of the 14ers qualifies as a long run. And I’m sure there’ll be weeks during this cycle that I’ll be in the mountains and I simply won’t be able to bust out a long run. We’ll be sure to get our solid base work, tempos, and hills done during the week so that we can run or hike long on the weekends.
Dats the game plan for the rest of this week. I am sooo looking forward to Sunday :)
