I went on my first actual run since my half this morning. As expected, it went well. I did have a little pain during mile 2, but I think it was because of the lack of running / too much eating I did over the last week.
Now that it has been a week, I need to figure out a training plan for my next half. It is a free race on 1/1/11 called the Hangover Half. It is hard to predict much about this race. It can be 50F or it can be 0F outside. The race is very boring in that it loops around a campus a few times. But, it is a great way to start the new year. I had a goal for my half last weekend that I did not hit; I would like to try again but since I cannot predict the weather for the next half I don't know if it will be possible. Better yet, any locals running?? Realistically, if it is 0F outside I may go for the shorter race (it might be 3.5 miles). I still want to be ready for all 13.1 miles.
So...should I re-do the last two months of the plan I was just doing? Find something ~10 weeks long to get me to the new year? Do what I can when I can? What would you do?
