You Don't Want To Miss This Noxgear Giveaway

Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

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.
