I want to keep myself from getting burned out; I want to enjoy this training cycle and feel strong at my race.
Which race? Why,
Anyway, the half is in January and it will be my last big race before Ragnar. I have about 7 weeks to train, and given that I'm not starting from scratch, I'm feeling confident in my ability to be smart and effective this time around.
I have a pretty nice race schedule arranged for the next few months:
(As I was writing this, I forgot how old I was. That was a scary 10 seconds.)
Also on my radar is New Years. I have only ever kept resolutions when I thought about them well ahead of time, planned them out, and related them to running. That's how this whole "hobby" of mine even got started! I'm playing with a few key goals this year; I'm trying to keep it simpler than last year.
Not that this year's resolutions weren't successful...but my goals for next year are going to take a considerable amount of commitment, and I think the simpler I keep them, the more likely I'll be to succeed.
But that's another post altogether!
What does the rest of your race season look like?
What is your favorite distance right now? I'm rediscovering my love of the 5k, but I'm excited to train for some longer races!
Have you begun to think ahead to 2014?
Have you ever kept a New Years resolution?
