I'm thinking I need to put a shorter race on the horizon so I have something to focus on. It will get me to look at losing a bit of weight and conduct a few faster workouts. I'm up near 179 which is about what I end up without any governance. The days of unbridled hamburgers and hot dogs, along with cake and ice cream almost daily will need to subside.
Maybe by next week I can report a mini race schedule. I think I'll spend the week deciding how the training should play out. It will be built around one primary long run a week. That is how far I have thought it through this year. Sure there will be 1-2 harder efforts a week, but I may eschew even a medium long run during the week. Would like to have a few double days and keep the weekly mileage over 60.
