Training Plan Blunder
Somewhere along the line I messed up my marathon training schedule. I thought I was one week closer to the marathon than what is reality. Oh well I will have to put in one more week of 50 plus total miles. That is what I get for not reviewing the calendar after the first month and only looking at the plan itself. When I look back at the plan I can’t tell what week I skipped over.
Basically I will duplicate my last longest week of:
8, 6 speed, off, 10 mp, 7, 8, 16 with one alteration. 6 instead of 8 on monday to give a little recovery from the Sunday 16. Given my plans of the past doing double duty has been common. I have always done long runs in a double stair step pattern. Ex: 14,14,16,16,18,18 and so on with no set down recovery weeks. This program has gone 8,8,10,8,12,8,14,10,15,10,16,10,16,10,16,10,8, 26.2 race for the long runs. I should be able to handle one 16 mile double up.
I can’t wait for the race, I guess I was trying my hand at magic to skip a week and get there quicker. I stink as much at magic as calendar comprehension.
