My "No Plan" Plan


What's next, you ask?


My plan for the rest of May is....


NOTHING!


I am not going to have a structured anything.

I am going to run when I want to;

Do yoga when I want to;

Lift weights when I want to;

Sleep in when I want to... you get the picture!


Fall marathon training starts in June so I want to just enjoy NOT being in training.

Of course I will be thinking about the Portland Marathon and coming up with my plan. If you want to chat about that, check out the Forum on Runners Lounge.

That sounds nice. I just wrote out my Marathon/Triathlon/Marathon (races in June/July/October)...and realized that I won't be able to follow the No Plan Plan until late October. Gah.

Sounds like a fantabulous plan!:) Or no plan!

AnthonyP said...

I think that is a perfect plan.

Marcy said...

The "No Plan" Plan is the BEST plan :-)

I'm eternally stuck in "week one" until June :-). I think I like your plan better!

the gazelle said...

good plan. I'm thinking that might be my plan starting next week - for the rest of May. I'm 99% sure that I'm going to do the Portland Marathon....

Enjoy your no plan, plan!

I love the No Plan Plan. Two years ago I registered for a 12K, then a half two months later, then another half three months later. I ended up not doing the first one; it was just too much.

So go you!

Carly said...

Nice job on your race! No plan is a great plan. I tend to get burnt out if I have too much structure.

Non-Runner Nancy said...

OMG, JEss??? Are you in there? Did someone hijack your body? When you move in, I might need a little more structure. :P just teasin ya -- no plan sounds fantastic. :D

TNTcoach Ken said...

Just chill and let what happens, happen!

I think that is a smart plan to give your body a rest and to help prevent burnout. Enjoying sleeping in!
