Coaching for my Half Marathon Group starts tonight! On the first night of training, we talk about goal setting and we write down training paces before we go for a run. It’s possible that I won’t be able get out the door for the group run because a lot of runners want to talk over their individual circumstances with the coach even though they have been given enough information in the group setting. It’s also only 10 degrees out and some also want an excuse to not go outside and run. And that’s all fine with me. I like that they take their training seriously and want to make an effort to do it right.
Knowing this, I got my run done earlier today at the local dome. I’ve been on the treadmill the last couple of days and might have to go outside tonight so this was a nice way to be able to get the 4 miles done without too much discomfort. If I do end up running again tonight, it should be 4 miles or less so that is fine.
Time to bundle up and then try not to sweat too much while I explain endurance training!
