I am at this weird place, feeling a little lost.
Not only did I not run this morning, because I am still sore and no reason to push it. I am going to try to get in 5 miles on Thursday because I won't be able to get in a run this weekend.
And then next week I can run my "normal" 3 miles on Tuesday and 4 miles on Thursday. Then I have an obstacle race on Saturday the 21st. And then my weekends should be able to get back to "normal"with a long run on Sunday. Half-Marathon training is slated to start on Sunday July 6th. But I will get a long run (probably 10K) in the weekend before since my mileage for June won't be high.
I looked at Hal Higdon's Novice 1/2 Marathon training plan and I am not thrilled - I want more miles! And I worry about so much cross training the day before a long run. I had adapted my own plan off of the "Train like a Mother" 1/2 Marathon plan, which I think I will adapt more closely, though I think my runs during the week may be more "just runs"versus hills and speed and tempo and all that.
I've got to get into strength training and cross training.
For now I just need to be patient and enjoy the fun things I've got going on the next couple of weeks, and once June 23rd comes around and our summer schedule kicks in, I can start a more organized training schedule.
