Plan for the Rest of the Year

With just over two months left in the year I really only have one goal left in terms of running, staying health. Since I won’t be running anymore races this year and since I won’t be able to match last year’s mileage what I am aiming for is to get back to a regular routine while avoiding injury.

Since returning to running late last week I have managed to get out for four runs. All of those runs were run at an easy pace. I plan to keep up with the easy pace for the rest of the week. Starting next week I will start to bring tempo runs and hills back into the mix. Speed intervals at the indoor track will follow in December.

That said, with a new addition set to join our family over the next couple of week my running schedule in November will  be irregular because I will be busier with more important matters. for now I can only hope that by the time our second child is old enough bring along it will enjoy riding in the Chariot as much as our 3 year-old does!

That’s how I plan to close out 2012. Once January rolls around I will aim to get back to a specific training program to get ready for a spring race.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?

  1. Wow! New additional? You’re gonna be busy!
    Our second one joined us in late August and september was a write-off in terms of running. Now that she’s two months old and starting to find a routine, getting out for running has been easier.

    1. I expect November will be pretty much a write- off and that any runs I have time for will be a bonus.

      Glad to hear that getting out for a run is getting easier for you again.

  2. Enjoy the new addition to the family! Congrats. That’s much more important than running!

    1. Thanks David. We are really excited. I am looking forward to the new arrival. I agree it is much more important than running!
