March update

Managed to wrap up February with a decent mileage week (31 miles). Got 27 miles over last week. Ran my furthest long run so far (14.2 miles) yesterday. From this point forward, every long run is going to be a milestone distance for me.

Feel pretty good and looking forward to 5 miles tomorrow.

February is ending.

My training volume down-shifted a bunch. Lack of motivation, cold-weather, whole ‘lot of factors and excuses.

I did get some running in when I was in Texas last week– really nice to run with shorts on again.

Re-vamped my training plan to fit the remaining 17 weeks. I’ve got to maintain min. 35 miles a week till I taper.

Let’s see what March brings.

First Week of 55K Training Complete

Been doing a lot of reading and ended up modifying the hal higdon novice 2 with back-to-back runs on the weekend.

Finished up the first week with 36 miles. Going to be staying at a minimum of 35 mpw with two peaks of 45 mpw. My longest run will be 20 miles (twice).

Elevation gain & trail running are two things I will be concentrating on. I want to ensure I can handle the course elevation ( two loops of ascent 747m / descent 743m)

Fun times!
