Back in January of 2014, I started this blog as a way to keep a record of what I was doing, races, workouts, stuff I like, stuff I don't, etc. I decided to drop the written "running journal," and pickup the internet version. I have really enjoyed writing and look forward to continuing and hopefully expanding what I write about. I have been thinking a lot about how the majority of what I write about are my daily workouts and races, mainly me, me, me. It's no secret that the blogs and sites that do well, have a lot to do with the reader's needs as well. Moving forward, this is what I want to focus on more.
On a secondary note, I have also decided to pick up the "running journal" again. I have a need to lay out my training for a few months in order to really make 2016 successful for me, training and racing wise. Also, I want to incorporate running, cross training, and variety into my training. I need a plan for this and the paper lets me see the big picture, at least by month. Finally, as I am now 10 days out from the marathon, I am totally scattered and need to reel myself back in. This should do that.
Sometimes you need to unplug.
