Hansons or Bust.
I don’t know what the heck I am doing anymore with my running. I just know that I need to do something, before I lose my running groove. I have been doing this crazy nonsense dance now for the last year and three months. No goal, no racing, no nothing. My last race was over a year ago. I have just been miserable with no running destination. I keep saying I’m going to do this or this and end up doing nothing.
I figure now that my weight training is in full swing and I’m buzzing right along, I can try to refocus a bit on the running aspect of me. I have been reading Hansons on and off, and so far, what I have read, it seems like something I am willing to try. So yesterday was my start day. After going through the beginner plans (Which I decided I need to start there, because I have never ran a marathon before AND it’s been a year since I have had any real training going on) I have decided that is where I need to be. However, I am not starting at week one, since my base is strong enough to start further down the plan. So I will.
I am not sure that I am committed to the Mary, however, I do know that the training will also support a half (which I would like to better my time) and a 5k- which I also want to better my time. Not really decided if I want to focus solely on a 5k this year to take the pressure off, or do both. Good God, I can’t make my mind up. Either way, I’m going to try and start and stick to a training program. It probably will get a little challenging down the road, but I hope, I can get my groove back.
Yesterday (Feb 4) was day one. 4 miles @ 9:30 pace. Easy enough? I guess. *Sigh* I don’t know If I am biting off more than I can handle. Stay tuned for all my craziness and grandiose dreams.
