After a slow start this fall, things have picked back up with much thanks to warm weather and a little luck. Since Christmas, I have been fortunate enough to find some more temperate climates: Phoenix, Austin, Tallahassee.
The plan at the moment is to continue running my base phase through the winter months, and keep the mileage high, and the workout volume up. With still two weeks left in Florida, and a blizzard at home, I can’t emphasize enough how great of a decision it was to escape those conditions.
Training is going well, and on schedule. Indoor will be short-lived, and I will be pacing some teammates in a few weeks, and then Millrose. If the body feels up to it, I may hop into one last-chance meet, but have no set plans to run USAs at the moment. All about outdoor!
Here was my last week:
Monday- 10 x 1k + 4 x 200
Tuesday- 12 miles
Wednesday- AM: 6 mile tempo / PM: 6 x 15 sec-hills
Thursday- 11.5 miles + strides
Friday- 5 x [3 x 300]
Saturday- 18.5 miles
Sunday- 6 miles
