This Week in Training

Well, it's been a long time since I posted one of these. After some unfocused training due to many factors in my life, some pleasant (a wedding and a house) and some unpleasant (a pink slip), I'm back to goal oriented training. Since my fall was so hectic, I didn't think that the timing of indoor track was going to work for me this year- it's hard to believe but the meets have already started! Instead I have decided to tackle some of my softer PR's and hit the roads for some road racing this winter and spring. I've picked out a couple of races and I'll probably add a couple more as I get going. I'm going to do a race on New Year's day for fun but other than that, I probably won't race until I think that I'm ready to PR. Getting into distance running can be a bit of a challenge for me since I've been so sprint oriented, but I'm working on it. It's not a good sign that I missed a day of training the first week of my cycle though! Gotta keep the motivation high! A couple of training breakthroughs should do it for me; if that doesn't work, there's always the treadmill that's arriving tomorrow!
