It's hard to believe we're almost halfway through 2017. I'd say the first half of my year has gone pretty well, not only with running. I keep making progress with my ITBS, and I've settled into my new home, job, and state.
My first and only goal for June was to relax and recover from the Bolder Boulder. I took a complete rest for 13 days before I got the itch to start strength training again. I'm now getting the itch to start cardio again, so my goal for July will be to work on that cadence, and build my base back up. I'd also like to finish acclimating to the altitude, but that'll come on its own. I'm almost there. And then my race for Vegas is at a lower altitude than Denver, so maybe I'll benefit from acclimating?
I'm going to get new shoes this weekend, and then get back to the gym. I haven't been to my gym at all in June, which is why I didn't want to sign up until the summer. Darn that Colorado weather! I have been looking at training plans for Vegas, and I think I'm going to stick with the Hanson's 15k plan, and adjust it to 10k. I've looked at my calendar, and if I push the plan to 11 weeks, training starts in September!
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
