Last weekend’s Ghost Train was my last scheduled race for this year and after I take this gluttonous, lazy week off, I’m going to start my winter training. I started having some serious pain in the bottom of my feet, especially my left foot, so I might take a few weeks off from running and start next week with the stationary bike at the gym. Looking back on how last winter turned out, I’m hopeful that I can add a little more muscle while I burn off some more chub. Without the lead up to a race, I feel like I can get into a more regular running routine. I still have the training plan my friend made up for me, and I intend to mix in some other exercises to get through this winter pain free.
I need, like really need, to start writing here again. I feel better than I thought I would after running 45 miles last weekend, but don’t want to push it before I need to. It’s a long winter up in these parts and I want to enter it healthy and strong. This blog keeps me thinking about my training, and I definitely feel like I am deconstructing my running more when I sit down to write about it. We’ll see, I’ve said this before and rightly neglected it.
