Do you have trouble finding time for your exercise routine?
In the fall of 2005 I started walking and completed my first 2 mile event at the Madison Turkey Trot with the first snow of the season covering the ground.
One year later my long distance goal was the 5 miler on Thanksgiving Day in Madison. No snow at the 2006 race but instead we had a hard rain with 30 mph winds and a temp of 40. Even with the chilly conditions I ran in shorts and managed to maintain my 5k pace for the 5 mile rainy race.
Back in January before I discovered ActiveRain I set my running Goal for 2007. The plan was to increase mileage and run a half marathon ( 13.1 miles ). The selected event is quickly approaching and my training has slacked off quite a bit since finding ActiveRain. Looking back at my log during the winter I was running 4 or 5 times a week for a total of about 30 miles.
Once I was infected with Blob-Butt my running dropped to about 15 miles a week. Memorial Day weekend I picked up the pace and tried my first long distance training run of almost 12 miles. It felt ok and I completed the same course today so I should ready for the Fairfield Half Marathon.
Wondering how I should proceed during the next two weeks. My thought is to continue with 5 miles runs every other day and go into the long race with 3 days rest. Any words of wisdom are welcome.
