It's going to be about running. Who knew?
I've been nervous about my long runs getting longer. The pain from my last training experience is still very fresh on my mind. 14 for me, represents the threshold into real marathon training. 12 is, eh, just a long run. 14 is business. I'm hopeful that my injuries are behind me know. I'm training smarter this time 'round and being very respectful of my weak @$$.
And just for giggles, since I'm so pleased with my new, less intense training program, I'm posting my schedy for this week. This go-round I'm focusing on fewer miles and more cross training. Let's hope this adds up to marathon success in May!
Sunday - Rest (always one of my faves)
Monday - 3 mi run with fartleks
Tues - cross training (prolly 10 mi stycling)
Wed - 7 mi easy pace
Thus - 4 mi easy
Fri - cross training (prolly 8 mi of stycling)
Sat - 12 miles (unless I decide to do the Cowtown half...)
Hope you enjoyed your weekend too!
