Updating The Plan
My training plans are constantly changing. Partially because my plans are constantly changing. I was planning a 10k in June, but I never found one I wanted to register for that worked with my schedule. Soccer and a kids race already consume a good number of the potential race days!
So last night I decided to sit down and spend some serious time working on a new and improved training plan for the next few months – it will take me right up to a half-marathon I am definitely registering for in early September (Rotary Run for Life in Stony Plain) plus another few weeks that would include some pretty tough training to prepare me for a Ragnar Relay – on the off chance I get chosen to run with Team Dimity or Team Sarah in October going from Maryland to Washington, D.C. I’m hoping the power of positive thinking will help me out in that one 😉
Regardless of whether I get to run in the cool and exhausting relay, I did need to get my prep plans in place for the Rotary Run. My DH is pretty sure his work schedule is going to have him home that weekend so we will get to finally do a half-marathon together, after the sucky September where pneumonia played havoc with our first planned joint half-marathon. Plus my schedule will continue to include some good strength training for our Mud Hero in August. Organizing my training plan always takes me some time – I am using the Train Like a Mother Finish It Half Marathon Plan, but I need to adjust so that my rest days are Saturday; it just works better for me. Plus, I convert it all to km instead of miles (10 km just sounds farther than 6 miles – doesn’t it?!) I’ve got the last two weeks of May then all of June, July, August, September and early October covered now. Phew! Now I can relax and go for a run.
