0 Looking Ahead To Race Training: It's Goals, Goals, & Yes, More Goals!


Looking ahead, here's my next tier of running & race-training goals:

(1) From December to June, follow BTHR plan. (5K-->half-marathon training). Through the winter, run outside as long as humanly possible, i.e., until it becomes too icy. Then move indoors for gym workouts. Continue interval training alternating equipment: treadmill, stairmaster, bike. For weight-lifting regimen: Circuit train using nautilus equipment, or get Dad's weight training machine & use that.
(2) In April 2008, enter 5K races.
(3) By June 2008, enter 8 & 10K races.
(4) By October 2008, enter half-marathon races.

After reaching the first set of goals, I'll see where I am on the calendar. If necessary, I'll re-evaluate the timeline for the next set of goals. I think this is a good start, with specific, measurable, realistic goals.
