So I've been delinquent in regards to posting lately, but I'm back on track now. Running through the holidays was alright, but really for the last month of 2008 I floundered quite at bit. It wasn't necessarily a lack of motivation, but perhaps direction? So when the calendar turned over to 2009 I got serious about laying out some goals for the coming year and that has done the trick so far. Just being consistent (6-7 days per week) for that short of time has helped.
Of course there is a ways to go. Right now I'm working in the 7:30 - 8:00/mile pace for most runs on the treadmill, but at least I'm feeling better doing it. Small steps.
As far as goals for the year, I think its going to be a marathon year, but don't hold me to it. I lower key May marathon run off base mileage and a few workouts, a full build-up October marathon, and then a November ultra (JFK?).
All that sounds great, but I really would settle for a healthy, consistent year of training.
Oh and we're at 150" of snow in Houghton so far this season. Welcome to the UP!
