: This week was big!
I decided to take on a running coach. I have been considering the idea for a while, and the timing felt perfect. So I did it. I had my first phone conversation with my coach, Ian Sharman
, and we set up a 2-week training plan. In 2 weeks we will set another 2 weeks...and on. My focus is on increasing my speed and preparing for my next 100 miler: HURT 100. So far, I really love the intention that is going into each and every workout. I couldn't be more pleased with how training is going. We started the week with lower mileage (~70) and will begin to pick it up to 90-100 mile weeks as I get used to some of the new quality workouts.
: Track workout. 200-400-800 ladder + warm up cool down. 10 miles. 500 feet climbing.
: 5 miles Sehome. 800 feet of climbing, easy.
