The end of the year is for reflecting and then planning. Planning for what will be goals and aspirations of the fresh new year, or in some cases.. the rest of your life. I'm not usually one to create resolutions.. in fact, like Jimmy Buffett sang in a recent song.. "I'm gonna made a resolution, that I'll never make another one". Resolutions are so short lived and soon forgotten. In fact, just go to the gym the first couple of week in January... you can hardly get a workout done for waiting in line at the weight stations. But just a few weeks later (or a few days) those same lines are no longer there. Where did they go? Back to their old ways.... Well.. enough about all that.. Let's talk about running stuff!
I am in week six of my Hal Higdon Advanced Half Marathon plan... with seven weeks left till race day. I've not used this training plan before, but I have heard some positive comments about it. His plan has emphasis on run times (duration) and not distances. And it includes 3 "recovery" runs during the week to both recover and prepare for the speed workouts during the rest of the week.
Yesterday I recorded and posted my first running podcast > http://earlymorningcruzin.podbean.com/ It's a first run at it.. and I will hopefully get better!
I do have goals for both my blog and podcast.. and that is to DO IT!! so there... I said it..
