I'm still struggling a bit with kicking my ass out the door to run, but I did get in 20.2 miles last week with 3 runs. I'm going to try to bear down this week, try to get my 4 runs in and somewhere up over 25 miles at least.

Didn't quite get in the miles I wanted to last week. I am starting to think my goal time might be overly ambitious for what I've been able to train lately. My shin is having a touch of pain today, so I am going to go with the elliptical trainer at the gym. Anyway, here's my plan:<br><br>
M- 60 min on the elliptical<br>
T - threshhold intervals<br>
W- 4 or 5 five easy<br>
Th - 6<br>
F - 4 or 5 easy<br>
S - 12<br>
Su - 4

M- rest<br>
T- 8<br>
W- 7.5 maybe a progressive run<br>

This is an easy week for me, which is good since I'm still nursing a tiny muscle pull in the back of my leg. I ended up skipping my long run yesterday because of it (12 mi) and was seriously bummed about it. I'll get over it. My leg is feeling much better today so I'm going to test it out tomorrow and see what happens.<br><br>
M: Rest<br>
T: 7<br>
W: Rest<br>
TH: run 30 minutes<br>
F: Rest<br>
S: 4<br>
S: 10k race

5.3 this evening. Sticking with the same schedule as the past few weeks, except I substitute a 10K race for the long run. That will give me about 30 miles.<br><br>
You should consider taking the 10K easy.

just found this thread....<br><br>
i'm doing half and full training sort of mixed together, but have a goal race coming up this weekend, plus another in early May<br><br>
this week is San Francisco Kaiser Half. hoping for 1:27:30, which would be a PR by a couple minutes. If the weather is good it's a fast (ie. net downhill) course.<br><br>
training plan is a hodge-podge to be honest, and is timed for the full (end of may). Shorter races, like this half fall at the end of a cutback week, so there is a mini-taper. it has been pretty high mileage compared to anything i've done before (84 last week) so we'll see how much good that does me on sunday.....

At least the weather forecast is looking pretty good for the 10K. Looks to be sunny and low 30's race time. Still trying to decide how hard to run it.

5 easy Saturday. Ran a 10K Sunday in ideal running conditions. Finished in 45:20 for a 3 minute PR. I was pleasantly surprised since I haven't been doing much if any speed work the last few months, just lots of easy miles. Now it's got me thinking sub 1:40 for the half in April.

I ran a 5K yesterday and even though it was in miserable conditions, I was disappointed in my time ..... I need to start working more speed if I want to get back down to sub 2hr HMs.
