Beginning Winter Training

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.
