Then I can think about and set some new even bigger goals.
Chris, training for 10K in 25 days. My running program is tailored for that right now. Then, half marathon in March. Of course my running program will change after the 10K, and shift to half training. They are certainly different.
I appreciate your perspective too.
What are you basing that prediction on? Unless you up your food intake and cut back on some of your workload, I see you making minimal progress towards your running, strength, or body composition goals. From my perspective it looks like you're trying to do too many things at once.
