18 weeks to bayshore; I'm at roughly 25 miles per week running and three hours of mixed cross training- yoga, bike trainer and the like. If it were all running, it would be not unlike having 40 miles per week base, which isn't all that bad.

So, what changes am I going to make starting Monday? Not yet set in stone, but here are a few I'm playing with:

keeping track of food eaten, breaking down servings of grains, fruits, veggies, meats and the like.
being more organized about my training; catch as catch can is all well and good outside of training cycles, but I want to know what I can do when I'm really trying.
Getting to the gym to try longer runs. It's impossible to do them at tempo outside right now, and it may be something I can accomplish on a treadmill.

I'll have to see if I can make it work...

Well, the year in running is taking shape. So far, I've signed up for

3/29 Ann Arbor Half
4/25 Let's Move Half
5/23 Bayshore Full
9/5 Labor Day 30K

~20 weeks to Bayshore. No real goals but to finish, and hopefully have a fun time. Quasi goals of a negative split, and maybe to run the final 10K faster than the first.

Time to start putting together a plan. I'm thinking it'll be based on hours of cardio, weight training 3 days/week, yoga 3 days/week.

We'll see how it goes...
