After taking the week after Club Nationals XC off, I managed to log in 57 miles last week, all of it at a pretty easy effort. I didn't feel like I lost anything from the time off and even managed a 13.5 mile long run on Saturday. This week will be more or less the same before I start incorporating some harder workouts into the mix in January. It definitely feels like winter here now, which always makes running more interesting with snowy bike paths and lots of ice to look out for. As far as goals for 2010 go, the big ones will be the USATF Masters 10K Championship in Ann Arbor, MI on June 6 and the Brian Diemer 5K in Grand Rapids, MI six days after that -- the Michigan Double! Fall as always will culminate with Club Nationals XC, which will be held in Charlotte, NC. Some other races I'd like to do are the Masters 5K championships in Syracuse on Oct. 3 and the Youngstown Peace Race 10K in late October. I've never done that one, but it's USATF-certified and people always seem to run real fast there due to a lot of competition up front. I can't wait to get racing again and may even do a February 5K as a rustbuster before the St. Malchi 5 miler in March.
