We Have a Plan

Seven days...Seven whole days with no training plan, no chart on the fridge bossing me around, no mental checkmarks after my morning run...I missed my training plan.  Don't know how I survived those 7 days.  We are just under 16 weeks away from The Sears Great Canadian Run so even though we are still recovering from our marathon, it's time to get back in the saddle and back on a training plan.  Finding a 50K training plan is not like finding a 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon, or even a marathon plan.  They are few and far between, with most of the information out there being guidelines on how to develop your own training plan.  We did find this plan, and decided that it works for us.  It eases us in to (very) long (20+ miles) runs slowly which we are hoping will allow us enough time to fully recover.  We will be tweaking it a little, flip flopping a couple of runs and adding some miles to make it work around our vacation, but this is the one.

Headed out this morning for an easy 45 to 60 minutes (obviously I did 60 mins...I have issues).  Felt good to be back.

Check #1 of 50K training.

  1. Awesome! I felt the same way on my week without a plan. I am back on a plan and started on week 3 for 1/2 #2 in August. I like not having to think about what I have to do each week. Anxiously awaiting race report part 2 :) xo AM
