The Dirty German is on May 13th this year, and while “official” training doesn’t begin until January 23rd I’m doing a few weeks of pre-training to start building mileage back up. I kinda fizzled out back in September or October – … Continue reading
I’m officially registered for the Sloppy Cuckoo 12-hour Challenge!
First off, I’m NOT planning on running for 12 hours straight! My goals are two-fold: 1) to (finally) become a marathoner, and 2) complete one extra loop (which would equal 50k) to become an ultra runner!
I’ve spent the past few days putting together a training plan where I wouldn’t be starting over from scratch. Especially since I just did a 23 mile run a few weeks ago. I came up with something similar to my last training plan (since it really worked well!), except this time I’m only designating a certain amount of mileage on the long run day. Here, have a look:
I used to do my long runs on Sundays, but with the higher mileage it’s been working out better running on Saturday. Then I can mostly rest on Sundays, other than a short recovery run.
I’m going to continue using run/walk intervals for the long runs because they’ve really been beneficial as far as recovery goes. The intervals also make the really long runs less daunting ;) For the shorter weekly runs, I either just run or do jog/run intervals.
I’ll be back in the next day or 2 to go over nutrition goals, gear/gadgets, etc…
Stay tuned :)
