It’s no secret that staying in any kind of groove during the sweltering summer months is something that’s been incredibly difficult for me this season. It’s been all I can do to survive the summer heat. Trekking back and forth across Florida while trying to get a number of dreams and schemes sorted out before fall arrives has not made things any easier. Instead, it has discombobulated my running regularity and any sort of routine I thought I would uphold this past month. Still, my running shoes have been going with me everywhere, and I have been making an effort to run in between thunderstorms. Each and every run has been a sweaty, tiring kick in the butt.
As the latter portion of summer blazes on, in an effort to keep on keeping on and hold myself a bit more accountable between now and the arrival of fall, I’ve developed a simple 8 Week Base Training Plan.
