Time to run – not to blog
I have been busy lately. Why do we allow ourselves to work so much? It seems like everyone is working their lives away. I don’t live to work, but unfortunately I have to work to make a living.
In order to get my miles in I have had to cut back on some hobbies. My blogging has taken a hit, but my training is going well.
Here is a quick update. My long run is up to 15 miles and I have started to mix in some speed workouts. It’s not exactly blazing speed, but it’s a good start. Tonight, I had an 8 mile workout. I did a 1 mile warm up then 5 miles of 1/2 mile intervals as follows – 7:40, 7:20, 6:50, 7:40, 7:20, 6:50, 7:40, 7:20, 6:50, 7:40 – followed by one mile at 6:50 and a 1 mile cool down.
I have been pretty lax with my workouts so far. I have been focusing on mileage goals and strength training. This weekend I plan to finalize my training schedule and layout the next three months of workouts. Maybe I’ll get it posted.
