It has been a very challenging month for me on in my personal and work life so I am very pleased with the work that I was able to put in this month. I struggle with wanting to include stuff from my personal and work life on this blog and start blogging everyday or two but I am just not there. Maybe someday. One thing I do want to share is that I am very thankful for the friends and family that I do have in my life, they have helped me more than they will ever know. They know who they are. Thank you.
So anyways back to the important stuff!
I think November was a good stepping stone to rebuilding the deep base that I had this summer. Originally the plan for 2016 was to race Cross Country Nationals in Bend OR in Feb, then Boston in April, then onto whatever 100 I picked for the summer. Now that has changed due to life. It was just to hard to get a group of at least 5 guys over the age of 40 to commit to Bend. Just a challenge with work, families, ect. So with that I am re-looking at the first 3 months of 2016 and how I was going to approach training. I did start following a pretty intense 10k training program a few weeks ago to get ready for Cross Country Nationals in Bend but with that now being scrapped, I am thinking I am just going to go back to pure base work with lots of weights thrown in between now and mid February. Then come mid February switch over to a pure focus on Boston. Depending on how that training goes will decide what goals at shoot for at Boston, right now I am pondering if I can break 3 hours or not. So with that thought process and being talked into it by a certain someone (you know who you are), I have decided to end my base phase by doing this as a long training run.
After this weekend I will be able to lay out the rest of 2016 I think, so more to come.
