Since my triathlon, my training has been all over the place. Here is a list of things that have counted as workouts during the last 3 weeks.
It's been fun doing different activities each night, but it feels very unstructured. I have mentioned before that I am a type A personality. I love schedules, lists, and goals. Not knowing my workout schedule for each week has been a little weird.
My initial thought was that after my tri, I would take 2 weeks off and then begin training for a fall half marathon. Things changed because my company is competing in an event called Corporate Challenge. Companies from all over DFW register to do events in a 2 month long Olympic style event. Events range from Soccer to Kickball to Bass Fishing. Since I am athletic and competitive, I have been taking part in a number of events. There are gender requirements for most events, so the guys can't bring home all the gold by themselves. I have another post planned, so I won't go into too much detail about Corporate Challenge right now.
Besides Corporate Challenge, I've been keeping up my running, but I've kept my distances short. I want to start adding long runs back to my weekends. That leads to my dilemma. I have not registered for any future races. I have one friend trying to convince me to do another sprint tri, but I think what I really want to do is fit in a second half marathon for 2013. I plan on taking some time this weekend to research my race options, commit to a goal, and start putting together a training schedule.
What about you? Do you stick to a training schedule? What are your goals?
