Its taken more than a few false starts but I seem to have gained some traction on the road back to fitness. The last 16 months or so have been filled with so much change it was a challenge to keep plotting forward knowing what month it was let alone being able to map a day to day routine. I can say now after a month or so of steady progress that I seem to gaining the ability to bring running back into a balanced routine.
Moving forward I am motivated by nearing a fairly large milestone for me and that is being near the 10,000 km mark in logged training. I know I spent near a year off the Garmin grid but I’ll forget about the mileage I know I gained and just focus on the official numbers.
Looking ahead at 2014 I am taking aim at resetting my personal best times at every distance. My fastest 10k, half marathon and marathon times were all set in 2009. As for the Ultra distance events I’m looking to improve on the 100k and 100 mile times. I dont foresee a 50 mile event in 2014.
Although the sample time and overall numbers are in their beginning stages I’ve noticed a signifigant bump in the tempo and interval speeds during workouts. Hopefully a good sign.
