Hope you all are having a great summer so far. I'm currently in down time letting my body recover before I start the base training phase. This is still a fun time for me as I get to to re-evaluate a few things to better myself in the future. Things such as what vitamins I should be getting, what additional core routine I should add or what races I should look forward to. This time is also good to try new things, new trainers, new running surface, new drills, new recovery products or even new training methods because there is a lot of time to make adjustments until the first race (which I honestly have no idea when or where that will be). There are always things that we can improve on as runners, but we must slowly reach them year by year. However, we must also allow the proper timing to make those improvements. Summer is great because there's less pressure from school, racing, traveling etc. When the season starts, I'd like to focus on only 2 things: training and racing. As for now without any race plans, it's hard to design any training plans as well. I will wait and just do some light jogging for now until I have some of sort direction or purpose.
