I am going to go with the Hanson plan once again this summer. I also have a few goals to go along with it.
- Wake up when Tom gets up so I can get out the door by 7am each morning and do my runs. No waiting until 9 or 9:30. Last summer was too hot and I was stupid for not completing early morning runs before the heat hit.
- Race this summer. I want to get in some 5ks. And with that.....
- Get a PR in the 5k.
Yeah, that's a big one. I have been OK with my 5K PR since I got it during my junior year of college. Then this spring I realized that I am so capable of a better one. I'll need to get in speed. And I'll need to make sure I'm over with the hamstring injury.
Three weeks ago I had an intensive Graston treatment that left my leg QUITE bruised, but made it feel 10x better than before.
I'm trying to be smart now so I can get the results I want. I hope it'll be a good summer of training and that I can continue to see my times go down. But for now, I'm staying busy with final exams and end of the year packing!
