How can I say that? Michael ran the NC Half Marathon on Saturday and KICKED ASS with a 2:37. On a killer, HILLY course. Way to go Michael!
Other than that, there is nothing to recap. I am in a sort of post-race blues. My next half is in Feb. That much I know. And I also know that I want to train harder, and differently, than I did for this past race. I found a program through Runners World that includes speedwork, tempo runs and sprints. The overall weekly mileage is higher than what I have trained at before. So I need a few weeks of base building before I start the actual program. Which is perfect since I have 14 weeks and the program is 9 weeks.
My personal focus is shifting towards the more intense training and the right eating/nutrition to support the plan. Which, for those reading this, will mean an uptick in posts about workouts and food and fewer posts about what I baked. Boo. I will still bake but will have to find a way to give more of it away.
