So, with that in mind, I've been working on my plan for it. It still needs a lot of work. I've got most of the rest of 2012 figured out, except for maybe switching around some midweek long runs. I have some ideas for 2013 as well.This is what it looks like so far:
Yellow - ultra
Blue - marathon
Green - half marathon
Purple - 10K
Red - 5K
Orange - Other
Oh, and if a race has an asterisk, then I want to do it but I haven't signed up for it yet. And the far right column is the # of that type of race it will be (numbers/stats geek!).
You can see 2013 is kind of sparse so far. I need to work out back-to-back long run combos and concentrate on that so there will be less racing in 2013 except for big races. I do want to add a marathon/50K between Across The Years and Ray Miller 50 and then another one around 2/17 or 2/24. Or even a 12 hour would be good. If you know of any good ones around there, let me know!
My weekly mileage is not as high as what I did for JJ100 but I will have more long runs and hopefully at least 3 50 or + runs in my legs. And I really, really need to get those back-to-back long runs in this time! Really!
I switched up to the marathon at Malibu for this weekend. Oops. ;) But I think I'm good for it. The reason I didn't sign up for it in the first place was I didn't know how hard JJ would be on me. But since I only did 100K there...and a lot of it was walking, I think I'm ready. We'll see! Anyway, it will kick off an intense month or so of racing. Yikes! But they are more fun races than racing races so it shouldn't be too bad. I hope.
Wish me luck!
