Running Nerd Gets Her Schedule
When I got home from work today I checked my email and saw that I had received my February training schedule. I have a race this weekend so I already had my schedule through then. My February schedule will take me through my half marathon on March 3. I always love love love to get my schedule and see where my coach thinks I can go. Its kind of like a map to my fitness future or something. I usually start by seeing which workouts stand out to me as the hard ones and my stomach turns with nervous anxiety. I next look to my weekly mileage totals and see what kind of increase I'm in for. After looking at it five or six times I finally put down my phone and let it sink in. This all might sound weird but I love running and getting a glimpse into where my running could go just makes me happy. I wonder if everybody else feels this way. Today was "schedule" day and I loved it!
