Whew, busy week, both for running and life. This was my first “back to real training week” in a long time. I’ve built up a good base since baby was born over eight months ago, and have been waiting to start “real” training when my husband came back from his deployment.
What am I training for? Probably a still TBD fall marathon, and definitely some shorter races as a lead up. I’d love to race now but there aren’t many appealing options in July!
What does “real” training look like for me now? I still won’t follow a specific training plan, and will base my running off weekly goals. That gives me the flexibility to work running into life in a stress free/low key way. I’m just upping the goals I had while doing boosted base training the last few months. The other main difference is I’m actually setting an alarm to get up early so I can run more by myself, and before it gets too hot!
