I need a goal

I need a goal so I don't get lazy. After the next relay the schedule is looking a bit empty in terms of running races. 

Plus I need more medals. I just don't have enough....

Plus having races on the calender keeps me motivated to get out there and train. So I am on the hunt.

I know I want to do the El Paso Half for sure in February.
Maybe a 15K involving chocolate and friends also in February.
Perhaps the Bataan Memorial Death March in March.
Maybe a turkey trot in November.
There is a holiday 8K in December.

I think my new goal is to try to get a new PR in the half marathon so a sub 1:59. I also want to get better at trail running or really just do more trail running. I live near over 50 miles of trails...though they are pretty technical. Seems like the perfect opportunity to get stronger at trail running. 

With that in mind my general training plan will include a day once a week or every ten days of speed work, one day a week a tempo run, an increase in my mileage over time and continued Pilates and strength training. I would eventually like to get back up to running 40ish miles a week and two days a week have two a day runs. I am trying to not focus on speed with trail running and just have fun out there. Trail running here is freaking hard and a killer workout without worrying about speed. 

Now to execute the plan!
