My running and race schedule is winding down. I have a half marathon on 10/16 and a 10k trail race on 10/29, with two 5Ks sprinkled in, but mid-October after that last half is looking to be when I’ll start transitioning to a more cross-training mode. The winter always encourages me to ramp down the running and ramp up the weights and guided cardio classes. There is an 8-mile trail race on 12/3 that I’d like to do, but that won’t require much training and it will really be a game-time decision based on weather.
Problem is, I’m not feeling ready to ramp the running down in a month. Maybe I will feel better about it as it gets colder, buy I’m not digging the idea of it right now. I’ve found a half on 11/5 and I’m this close to signing up for it. I mean, there is still room on my race wall for a few more bibs and medals.
What to do, what to do….???
