14 weeks…

When June 1 hits, I have 14 weeks to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. By May 31, I will have a plan in place to train for this race. While this may sound like a normal thing to do, I haven’t had a written down plan for a race in two years. Seriously. What’s wrong with me? Did I think I was too good to have training plans? Sure, I had certain mileage goals in my head, but they weren’t written down.

Fourteen weeks is a good amount of time to get to where I need to be. And it gives me time to make adjustments as necessary. But not too many — remember last year when I hurt my tailbone? Worst non-running injury ever.

Things this week are going OK. I’m so glad I took last week off. I’ve ran a little bit — meaning less than two miles — and gotten in a treadmill workout and a short bike ride. Not much, but it’s better than nothing. I’m just ready to move on from this …

    You know I never wrote down a training plan either. Actually, I never had a training plan. EVER!! I just ran mostly. For my upcoming half this Saturday I did try to run some longer runs and hill runs but you know how those ended!! SUCK!!!!

    Anyway, a training plan is a good thing. Good luck with that. And enjoy it. Have fun!!!
