How is your Summer? A few weeks ago, I share with you how I was going to change up my Summer Training. In case you missed it, here is the link -> Click here
What I have done:
For the most part, my runs have been in the PM. I have kept my AM’s to dog runs, cardio work and DDPyoga.
Be Happy. This is the first summer since I started focused training (2011) that I have not dreaded the summer. I am enjoying my time with family and friends and not stuck to the reality I have to get up at 3am to do a run, so I can beat the heat.
What I have not done:
No long runs yet, so I have not hit the pool. That should be coming within the next week or so
No 3am wake up calls! (see above)
Not registered for one race. I have looked at a few for the Fall of 2017, but nothing has been added to my schedule. I plan to finish up my 50 Half Marathons by the end of the year. That’s my one focus for 2017, get through to the 50th Half.
I have the Disneyland Half and Disneyland 10k on Labor Day Weekend. I will kick up the training a bit for the 10k – maybe I can earn another AG award. It will be a great way to end my DL weekend career.
After DL, the Fall season kicks in and I have several races on my calendar. All are tentative, so I won’t be spilling the beans ahead of time. With my Meniere’s Disease it is very hard to plan ahead with my races. I never know how I will feel for training or on race day. For DL, I am going no matter what. At the minimum I will be doing my park time with my Disney loving husband.
How is your Summer going?
