I’m sure I’m not alone on this but when I’m not signed up for an event, my running get’s pretty haphazard. It’s not like I strictly follow a schedule, but when I commit to an event I pretty much think of it daily. Knowing the kind of miles I need to put in to be ready, helps dictate the days run and the weeks totals. With a fall marathon looming 4 months out, I know it’s time to up my mileage and long runs, now. That said, the best time to sign up for a big event is the day after you finish one! Without goals, you can’t reach one.
Keep the hammer down and the fire lit,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner with a goal.
