It's been a while since I've posted, but after running the MCM in Oct I've comitted to running a HM in Clearwater FL on Jan 19. I kept up my running routines after the marathon, albeit to a lesser extent than prior to it, but I still got out there, if for no other reason than I like to run. Having lived up north for so long, the weather in FL has been a welcome change - and obviously the "running season" (if there is one) is kind of flip-flopped: now is the season to be running; before the hot and sultry summer hits.
My challenge however, has been to get the miles in to ensure that I run a good HM - I've got 3 weeks to go, and I've yet to get over 6 miles... but I've done a lot of 6 milers, so I think that I've got a good base going. The next two weeks are going to be a big weeks before I give myself a week taper.
