Last week, I took as a rest week with only one moderate run. I wanted to allow my legs adequate time to rest and heal before beginning on my next venture.
Which brings me to today. I feel rested and healed. My legs are strong and I know I can achieve the fitness goals that I set out to achieve. So what next... I am at a crossroads where I need to decide what my next fitness goals are. Given my time constraints between family, work, and school, I have limited my activities to under an hour and three times per week. I will continue with this same restraint.
I am leaning towards sticking along the same trajectory that I started out on with a goal of decreasing my 10km run time. And also with a little side goal of getting my 5km time under 20 minutes. However, I want to try to incorporate a bit more bike riding into my training rather than just three runs per week.
I find, personally, that I need to set clear goals for myself in order to stay on track. Without clear goals, I lose some motivation and my determination fades. So, this week I am allowing myself time to explore options and define my goals. Look for my update later this week where I will reveal my defined goals.
