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.
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)
