OK, I’ll preface this by saying I know a lot of you run a lot more miles than I do/will. But, holy cow! I sat down tonight and roughed out the minimum miles I’d like to get in between now and my 5in5 races.
It’s a very different plan from my typical training. Usually, if I run 5 times per week, I have a long run, two mediums, and two short runs. That’s where I’m starting, but that will be changing pretty quick.
Some random thoughts:
- Runs are in no particular order for each week. I imagine I’ll move them around as my schedule dictates.
- I may change to more of a marathon training schedule and make my long run go longer than 13. (Anyone have any thoughts on longer long run with varying length shorter runs vs. trying to get to a point of double digits for every run?)
- I will try to run 5 days in a row as often as possible.
Most importantly, I think I will spend the majority of February running. I hope my boss doesn’t actually need me to get any work done.
Also, what was I thinking? 50+ miles per week EVERY week in February? It’s cold here then, y’know. Let’s just pray for no snow ’cause I’m not sure my sanity could make it through multiple double digit treadmill runs.
