Next week I begin deliberate training for the Disney Marathon in January 2010. I’ll target to complete runs at least 3X weekly, with one being a ‘long run’. the long run distance will increase right up to marathon time, and I’ll try to complete at least a couple of 21 mile runs prior to the 26 mile marathon. Here’s my schedule for long run distances to accomplish each month:
I’ll be de-emphasizing my twice weekly weight training at the Y, and bike rides. And as the distances get longer, I won’t be able to complete them on weekday mornings, so the long runs will begin to cut into weekend fishing time!
BTW: completed 11 mile bike ride to work this AM, saw two gators on the way.
