I received my 1st new workout schedule from my coach in almost 10 months. I stepped away from scheduled training in mid-winter due to a short financial “blip” and the feeling that since I wasn’t doing IM in 2007, I didn’t need a coach. As the year went buy in a series of no-training weeks, followed by 5-10 days of intense, frustrating self-led training, I knew that I needed some help.
After watching and volunteering at IMUSA, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for 2008. I wanted to go back and run the same events that I ran for the first time in 2005.
All of them.
And set PR’s in all of them
Talking about throwing down the gauntlet.
And now, dear reader, I will share them with you as a form of commitment. You keep reading here, and I’ll keep posting my progress. Come along for the ride, won’t you?
