Last week's training = Success!
Running felt so good that I ended up adding a few extra miles (Monday and Wednesday easy runs became 7 miles each and Tuesday's speed session was nine miles). I'm hoping this week feels as good but if not, I'll be happy just getting in my planned mileage and workouts.
From now until the Rockford Half Marathon, I'm going train in four week blocks. Within each block, I'll run the same mileage, long run and speed session for three weeks and then cut back during the fourth week. Each new block will bring small mileage increases, longer long runs and new speed sessions.
Afternoon: 6 mile easy run; 45 minutes strength training
Afternoon: 8 mile speed workout
Afternoon: 6 mile easy run; Guts and Butts Class
Afternoon: Boot Camp Class; 2 mile easy run
Afternoon: 4 mile easy run
Morning: 12 mile long run
Do you write your own training schedules or do you follow one from a website, book, coach, etc.?
