What’s this? A blog post?!

Remember when I used to actually write in my running blog? Yeah, me too. I think it’s about time I got back to it, don’t you?

Let’s jump right back in! I’ve been training for a 10 mile race that’s coming up on 6/21. I’m not really in the best shape for racing, but I’ll be able to finish. And the training has served it’s purpose by getting me back in somewhat of a running groove. I signed up for it kind of on impulse because I was having trouble motivating myself to run. And sometimes, the fear of going into a long race unprepared is what I need for motivation.

I made up my own “loose” training plan, and have been following it pretty well. It has two rules:

1. Increase long run by 1 mile per week.

2. Run other times during the week.

I won’t be setting any records at the race, but it’s a pretty EASY plan to follow. 🙂

Whelp, that’s about all I have for you right now. One big reason I haven’t been writing is because I’ve been short on time, so if I’m going to get back into it, I’m going to have keep it short and sweet. So, if there’s anyone out there still following this blog, have a good night!

  1. Huzzah, you’re back! 😀 I briefly considered signing up for that very same race, but it’s the same day as the half-marathon-now-5K that I had already signed up for. Anyway, I love your training plan… it sounds right up my alley!

    • I’m glad to be back. Hopefully, I can keep it up. I like to call that training plan the bare minimum special. It’s gotten me through many races! Haha.

  2. Yay you’re back! Let’s do another summer running scavenger hunt sometime soon so you’re motivated to both run and blog! Plus I wrote about running scavenger hunts on last week’s Friday Five post and thought of you! 🙂

    • I read that post on your blog, and it made me want to do another scavenger hunt! I’m totally on board for a summer hunt, or a series of them. 😉
