OK, I know, I know. I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I last posted either. Life has just been so busy lately! By the time I get home and squeeze in a workout there seems to be barely enough time to relax before going to bed.
I have been really trying to focus back on my running and start to slowly build up my mileage. A couple weeks ago I ran a very strong 10.7 mile long run. Finally having a nice double digit run has made me really start to get excited to start training for something again. It was nice to take a short break and to make sure my legs were feeling good, but I’m looking forward to getting back on a more thought out and consistent schedule.
I’m still trying to decide what my next goal race should be. I’m aiming to do a half marathon for fun in mid-April. But for a goal race, I will either train for a half iron in early June or a marathon in late July. Decisions, decisions…..
On another note, this past Sunday I spectated the Napa Valley Marathon because Ryan was running. I did lots of cheering, and was able to see him 3 times along the course. It was so motivating to watch people finish the race. You could see how emotional finishing a marathon can be! Ryan ended up running a big 13 minute PR! I am so proud of him! He’s still working on trying to improve his marathon time, and is looking forward to another race, but I thought he did really well on this one.
Promise to write again soon — lots of things to update you all on!
How do you choose your goal races? What race is next on your list?What was the last race that you spectated?
