In need of a plan

I thrive on schedules. I love plans. I yearn to check off or cross things off long to-do lists.

Running has always been the same way for me. I always have a race in the future that I'm training for. A plan to follow with a certain number of miles to run that week.

So what happens when there is no race on the horizon?

I run with no purpose other than to have something to do and for a reason to leave Mason in childcare at the YMCA for an hour a day.

But that's getting pretty boring. I've made a random goal of running 20 miles a week. Ok cool so I've done that. Now what?

I would like to get faster at running 5k's so logic would tell me to work on speed. Ideally I'll look up how to do speed work and start to incorporate that into my running. Easy enough right? So why haven't I done that? Laziness. Which is a funny term to use to describe me after I just said I run 20 miles a week.

I'm in a weird spot in running and I still love to do it, but have outgrown it I guess.

Sorry for the rambling but I'm sitting in my yoga class waiting for it to begin. Today will be the first time I've left Mason in childcare for 2 hours. It costs $2.50 for that extra hour so I plan on enjoying those extra minutes.
