I urge my fellow athletes to check out this site. There is a couple of great articles on training in the offseason. I'm realizing I don't want to spend a lot of mental energy to train right now, I'm basically keeping consistent, lifting weights as often as I can and not getting too worried about anything but the basics. I have a year to be intense, I just think it might get old or difficult to stay at a race training intensity for that long. I have my plan in place and it doesn't call for major "oh my gosh" training until late April. I have some parameters and goals to keep me honest, Chang's Marathon for instance, so I won't be going back to ground zero by any means. My plan is to keep up my endurance but to build a lot of strength in this off season. Did you happen to see the muscle mass and balance of Sarah R-the one legged Ironman from Kona. Having muscle envy right now. This picture doesn't do justice to the live images from Saturday's airing of Kona. I want to be a strong, steady athlete. That is the goal, and on that note, I need to go out and run for an hour. It's cold here-I don't really want to go, ask me again in 20 minutes when I've warmed up :)
I need a run, school conferences are tonight.
