Wow it’s been a long week. A lot of work stress and no running don’t mix well.

I’ve been laying low since CM10, I did the Pumpkins in the Park 5k last sat. We went nice and easy and had a lot of fun doing it. I did one other easy 2 mile around my neighborhood too. But that’s it.

I’ve been resting up for the IM v. HIM Challenge between me and “Capt. Idiot” Adam to determine what race we’re doing next year. Which brings me to my next bout of stress… How to train for this.

I’ve been doing some research on Tri coaches. My marathon training schedule was set by Nike+ but for a Half Ironman I’m gonna need help…. Lots of help. I’m going to take the weekend and make a coaching decision, make a list of the races I want to run throughout the year and mentally prepare for what’s ahead.

Sunday I’m going to investigate the Forrest Preserve near my house and try some of the run trails. It’ll be my first “real” workout for the year of training ahead. And it’ll be the first run logged in the Distance Challenge.

That’s all for now. I’m on the train heading home to enjoy the Blackhawks game and my weekend ahead.
