I'm back after a summer of maintanence, but now it is time to begin again

Friday, August 09, 2013

I have been running all summer...HRM training. Now, it is time to get back to training. We are running the half marathon at the Maine Marathon at the beginning of October.

I am using the same plan as last year for half training - it has worked well in the past, however we are starting training almost 1 month earlier than normal. Florida is HOT and HUMID at 5:30AM when I I am sure that will affect my paces, but I will push to get to those paces.

Next week has 3 key runs along with cross training at least 2 other days. I am planning on walking the other 2 days and also biking. I need to get my strength training and flexibility training in too.

Week 1: 20 minute warm-up + 4x400 @2:10 + 10 minute cool-down
10 minute warm-up + 3 mile tempo @ 9:39
6 miles @ 10:24

With the heat and humidity my paces could be slower by 2 minutes/mile.
