Well, 2018 is here! Buh-bye 2017, don’t let the door smack you in the booty on your way out!
2017 was definitely something else, as years go, and I’m trying to take what I’ve learned during that whole roller coaster ride and use it to my advantage in 2018.
Back in August, I set some pretty lofty goals for myself in 2018 and I haven’t changed those goals since then. The only thing I’ve changed since then is I dropped that on-line CrossFit coaching program through Power, Speed, Endurance, and hired a running coach.
My strength workouts are a little different than what I’ve become used to over the past few years (um, hello CrossFit!) but I’m not sad. My program is still new so there’s definitely room for changing things up as I move along. Plus, I’m doing work that will actually BENEFIT me as a runner and help me to get stronger and hopefully, remain uninjured (that is key. NOT trying to go down that road again!) I do feel that I need to add in some accessory work though – like pull-ups – so I don’t lose them.
Oh, and I’ve added a race to my 2018 schedule! Here’s what my plan looks like:
It’s been a while since I focused on my running and had races planned. It feels good to be back. 🙂
