I know most of you haven't even kicked off your hunting seasons yet, but since mine is over and done with and all I have left is a lot of time sitting in trees I figure now is as good as time as any to plan out next years goals. It was abundantly clear to me that going from 100' above sea level to 10,000' will cause you to huff and puff all day long, so my goal for the upcoming year is to make sure I'm in the best cardiovascular shape I could possibly be in. To accomplish this feat I figured I'd better start running, and what's the point of running if you don't race? What are some good times for a 6' 240# dude (hoping to drop 25-30 pounds over the next year as well) to run for a 5k, 10k and half marathon? If I stick to the Hal Higdon approach for training, should I be training my lower body on the strength days or just my upper? And can I do CrossFit type workouts on the days it calls for cross training?
