The "In Between"

Post  Nick Morris on Wed Nov 20, 2013 11:17 am

So, now I am in that transitional period.  The one where I have completed my training cycle and goal race and am deciding what to do next.  I had a great training cycle, which led to a new marathon PR and my first BQ.  For the first time in over four years, I have to make a new goal.  I am at a place that I haven't been in a while.  I call it the "In Between"...In between training cycles.  In between running goals.  

The one thing that I know is that I will continue to run.  My friend Pete is planning on starting a training cycle on December 1st for a 100k race in May.  I think that I will likely run some long weekend runs with him.  While at the same time, continue to run 2-3 times during the week.  Hopefully this will keep me at about 30-40 miles per week, which is higher than my normal winter running.  Then when lat winter hits, I may ramp it up a little bit and run a spring marathon.

This is the tentative plan and all the while will be thinking about what to do this fall. whether to train hard for a new goal or just train to run a race.  Only time will tell, as I venture through the "In Between".  

This blog will be my diary.  Collecting my thoughts and documenting my running as I navigate the "In Between"...

Ooo, a nice new, Nick blog. I see you're more organized than some of us, adroitly moving on to the next phase rather than bumbling around on the trailings of the last one. Wink

Good tidings for the journey.

Thanks Mark!!  I got my redemption, so I figured it was a good time to close the book on that one.

Nick, well, you've earned a new blog (so has Mark), so good luck on this latest adventure and don't get hurt.

Hey, I heard that. And even if it is a mid-life crisis, at least it's cheaper than a sports car and spray tan.

Last night the weather was craptacular at 39 degrees and rain.  This caused me to head to the gym to get my run in.  I got in three miles at around a 7:25 pace.  I find it weird that I sweat more in doors than I do outdoors during the summer.  Maybe it's because there is no wind...but on the other hand...there is no sun either.  Oh well...Not sure what I am going to get in this weekend, as we are heading up to Minneapolis for the Badgers vs. Gophers game on Saturday.  Maybe I'll get something in on Sunday, but it will depend on when we get back.

Nice run, BTW. I've always found that I always sweat buckets more indoors than out. I think that the lack of air movement has a lot to do with it. Good job getting it done.

So true.  Why, Mark and I are already a couple of dummies.  I just wish they wouldn't throw us in the washing machine to clean us.

And when I sweat, I don't sweat buckets, just water.  Maybe you should get that changed because the NOISE is deafening.

Why?  Because it's never your day for a bath.  THAT'S why.  That smell is not your 'aura', it's all that old, dried and matted woolskin you have.

It wouldn't be so bad, if the Count would stop coming over.  EVERY DAY, "Let's count how many days it's been since he's taken a bath 1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9..10, oh I can count more than that because, after all, I'M the COUNT.  Bwah, ah, ah."
