I wore my holiday tech "sweater" from INKnBURN for a festive feeling run.
By the time I got back to my car the road was muddy!
It's felt great to be in a not training for anything mode. No distances to hit, no times to shoot for just running and enjoying the time outside with my little dog. I do sort of have goals for right now...
- Crosstraining - I feel like I had been slacking off here. I have been back to 3-4 times a week of HIIT workouts. I think I had fallen back to like 1 or two a week.
- Yoga - I was really slacking off here. I am back to once or twice a week
- Running - No worrying about pace or distance just running. Getting out on trails as much as possible, running more hills, and enjoying the scenery/
My next half marathon will be in March so soon I will be back to training. I have been regularly doing long runs of 8-9 miles so building the distance won't be the focus as much as building up my speed again. Although I have considered relaxing my speed goals a bit and just enjoying an easier training cycle.
I had to share this photo of my little dog enjoying the view and no doubt wondering where we were running next.
