The florida racing season has come to a close. It was about this time last year that I set my sites on training for Disney. The next big race I plan on is the local OUC half marathon on 12/4/2010, so its been a little hard to keep my weekly motivation up for running. Its real easy to slip into only a couple of short runs to the Y every week I definitely want to stay in shape, keep my weight down, and be prepared for a quick ramp up to 13 mile readiness.
Therefore, I’ve adopted two easily attainable goals:
- run at at least 10 miles a week, something I can do with two runs and take weekends off
- run a sub-30 minute 5K (which I’ve never done but I’m sure I can with a little effort)
So far so good, last week 12.3 miles, and this week I did a 6.3 and a 5.2 mile run on Monday and Wednesday respectively. Easy.
