I am finding myself at a bit of a loose end post race.
I’m waiting for my coach to deliver me a training plan. I’ve always pretty much done my own training plans in conjunction with Hal Higdon. But this year, the coach threw out Hal, and told me he would be writing me a plan. It is sort of a tough thing to wait on it. I’ve had really good results with my coach. We get on very well. I gave him a gift cup of some of the Schwag I got at my race and he was like a little kid as he kept pulling stuff out of it. At one point he pulled out chapstick (they were handing it out) and he was like, “OOOOOH I need this! You always know!” I looked at his lips and they were really dry, but I gotta admit, I don’t really know…it was what was free. Despite that, we seem to have a pretty good coaching relationship. I look forward to seeing him, which is a definite plus.
It will be very interesting to see if I can trust him enough to do his plan without meddling with it. So…until then I am fooling around with running. Running what I feel like, and so on. I don’t like it. I feel as if I am doing junk miles.
I do have the 10K coming up, but as he said, “not much we can do about that since it is so soon” Still I suppose I should be training a bit and doing at least one long over then 10K distance this week and maybe even next… Hmmm.
That seems to be all I have to say!
