Moving forward and going back to the basics

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.
