Fall Update

There's not too much for me to blog about this week.  I have gotten a number of emails the past two weeks with questions from followers and I really appreciate it!  If you haven't read my two previous posts (10 ways to become a better runner) please do!

Training is going about as good as it could be right now.  I'm feeling good and I'm in better shape then I have ever been for this time of year.  But it's the right type of shape.  I'm by no means anywhere near 1:45 fitness but for the workouts that we have been doing, I am very pleased with where my fitness is.

This time of year for a lot of people can get tough because the weather is getting harder to train in.  But if you push through the cold, rain and snow, it will pay huge dividends down the road.  Bundle up and train smart!  Don't increase the risk of injury because you didn't warm up properly or you wore improper equipment (i.e. don't where shorts because you're a "tough guy!").

Here is my training from last week.  With Thanksgiving coming up next week, I have a scheduled down week coming up, which I am really looking forward to.
