I just registered for the Mt Hood PCT 50M on July 28th. It's my number one race for the year and all my training and races for the next 7 months are going to be focused towards that race. So far I've also registered for Hagg Lake 50k on Feb 24 and the Eugene Marathon on April 29th. McDonald Forest 50k in May is also a definite. I'm going to need that one for the hill training. I took Peterson Ridge off my sidebar since its been demoted to a maybe for now. And I'd like to incorporate some shorter races into my schedule this year, mainly because I think they'll be good for speed training. That has been one of the weak spots in my training.
My strength training for 2006 averaged out to 40 minutes per week. I want to bump that up to 1 hour per week at a minimum, although I plan to hit the weights twice a week for an hour at a time. And yoga in 2006 really fell by the wayside. Its been awhile since I've taken a formal yoga class. Just today I discovered that I can take a class at work during lunch at a highly reduced rate. So I signed up for one day a week. That should boost my yoga time average considerably.
I'm been building my base for the past month or so and have been holding steady at 31 mpw. This week Sharon and I are going to start increasing the mileage. I'll admit that I've been feeling stale for the past few weeks. That's probably due to all the road running and holiday food. But today I feel great and I'm ready to start kicking it!
