I know I've heard and read about runners going through slumps after certain races. Personally I think I'm just taking it easy since I don't have any PR attempts coming up and I start marathon training in 2 weeks.
The reason I bring this up is because my run was only 1.65 miles last night. Still productive, was able to pace to 10 min/mile in preparation for Saturday, and I was suppose to get up and hit the trail before work but decided to sleep in. So far for the month of May I'm at a total of 8.25 miles lol. Now that really is taking it easy. Mrs Schlub is at 22 for the month so I have some serious catching up to do. Now I have been battling some serious allergies and yesterday I did three sets of my squats and lunges which is the most I've ever done in one day.
No better time than now to refocus. Here is my Plan for the next couple days:
Today - 3-4 miles at 10 min pace
Friday - Morning trail run
Saturday - The Night Run 10k
Sunday - Rest
I am super excited to start marathon training and have been working on my training plan for a few days now. I need to continue to focus on the now and not overlook it by looking at my future events.
How is your training currently going? Anybody racing this weekend?
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
