As I got up about an hour ago... I realized my 8th 26.2... yes 26.2 number 8 is 6 weeks away. Yes... I will be up in the great Steeler Nation of Pittsburgh PA running what will probably be a hard and hillacious 26.2 miles as my cousins and mom's friends cheer me on.
Now that the National Marathon high has worn off... I'm getting super excited for this race. All I have to do now is figure out a plan for well... lets say 5 weeks of training. So I was thinking about the plan of attack for this short training period yesterday as I was doing one of the cardio machines at LA Fitness... my new favorite place. So here is how it's gonna possibly work out! Tuesdays and Thursdays will be the normal 5 to 6 mile run with Pacers in Downtown Silver Spring and Friday's or Saturday's... depending on my work schedule will require the long run. Just to further give details... here's the plan I'm going to try to stick to for long runs...
April 8th or 9th... 11 miles
April 15th or 16th... 15 miles
April 22nd or 23rd... 18 miles
April 29th or 30th... 20 miles
May 6th or 7th... 12 miles
May 15th... Race Day... 26.2 miles... NO WALKING ALLOWED!
Sound like a good plan of attack?
Here we go...
