Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Because It's All About That Base 'Bout That Base

You're humming the song aren't you? :)  The truth is right now, it is all about the base - mileage that is. I think I've finally found a training plan. YEAH!!!

It's not the Run Less Run Faster plan, mainly because I don't have the base yet to start any of the programs. I'm still not 100% well, and I need to focus on building base (because it's all about that base, bout that base).. Ok.. I'll stop :)

So I'm going to use
a free training plan from McMillan Running. I'm using the 2-3 day plan from the book You (Only Faster). It includes 4 weeks of base building before it gets into the specified runs. I plan to build base through December, and if all goes well begin the plan in January to prepare for my March race. So technically 2 months to build base before I start into intervals and speed work etc.

Currently, I'm thinking of the Capital 10 Miler as my Spring race. I'm still scouting out the races to see what I want to run this upcoming year. I'm planning to do some races to 'race', and some races to 'run for fun'.

I do plan to run another marathon - just not next year. I ran 2 Marathons in 2013 (At 40, I Finished My First Marathon, I Gave Up During My 2nd Marathon), and then trained all Summer this year to decide that I needed a break. So I'm looking at maybe 2016 for a Full. I physically and mentally need a break from Marathon training. So this upcoming year I'm looking at 5Ks, 10Ks, and Half Marathons.

And I have to say, I'm pretty excited - especially now that I've found my plan.
