Since it seems that in order for me to accomplish any physical activity I need a plan, I've been working on a plan. In two weeks I will start my 10k training plan. I had hoped there would be enough time in between the stair climb and my 10k that I could start training for the 10k after the stair climb leaving a few weeks to just focus on climbing 52 flights of stair. However, when I looked at the calendar today, I realized that wasn't possible. The new plan is to incorporate my stair climbing on cross training days of the 10k program and hope that works well for me. My Training Peaks calendar is loaded and ready to start training and hopefully in the next two weeks I can practice the general rhythm of the training days and be ready to rock and roll after I return from San Diego and the Finish Chelsea's Run.
In more of an effort to embrace my inner runner I recently purchased a display for my race medals. I saw these at the expo is Las Vegas but their booth was jam packed and I couldn't get anywhere near it, wasn't like I had room to fit it in my suitcase anyway. I recently bit the bullet and ordered one. Scott was kind enough to hang the hardware for me and I got to placing my medals on the display. I'm really happy with it and it's a nice reminder of my accomplishments and to keep at it. Don't tell Sydney but I ordered her the exact same one in pink for her birthday since she has a nice collection of her own race medals accumulating.
