Training, School, and Writing

School is done! I completed my Master in Business Administration December 18, 2010. My institution holds one commencement ceremony in the spring, so I'm saving the fanfare for then. In a related development, I'm now a contributor for Why? It fills the open time in my schedule normally dedicated to schoolwork! And for fun, I actually like writing. Although I stand to make $1.50 on average per article, it's something to do while cooped up in the house in zero degree weather. I haven't been running on pavement since New Year's eve. The treadmill is unbelievably boring, and with all the new year resolutioners at my gym, I'm lucky to be able to snag one of the 'good' treadmills. My training for the Soldier Field 10 Mile is scheduled to start end of March. Hopefully by that time Chicago will be past the ice and snow. I can deal with the cold, just not the possibility of slipping, falling and injuring myself. My training plan so far:

The original plan I found online called for the longest run of 11 miles. I personally think it's anti-climactic to do a training run longer than the distance of the actual race. I altered the plan slightly, my longest run will be 8 or 9 miles, depending on how I feel that week. I also extended my training plan from 10 weeks to 11.
