17 Week Marathon Training Plan Recap

Leave a comment

The total mileage is closer to 600 miles because I forgot to wear my Garmin on a few runs. First training plan I’ve followed from day 1 all the way to race day. Also the first time I’ve been injury free for the an entire training period. I know my aerobic level improved and so did my tolerance for the longer tempo pace runs. I had two sessions of 6 mile tempo runs where I managed sub 6:30/mile pace. Just a year ago I was having a hard time running a 6:30/mile pace for 2 miles.

Can’t wait to increase mileage for the next plan. Increasing mileage by 15% after 2 week recovery. This week will be all easy pace runs and next week I’ll be adding some speed play. I’ll be on the trails for my long runs and recovery miles. Looking forward to the solitude and scenery of the local mountain trails.

What’s Next?
I’ll be racing the California International Marathon. I really want to run a sub 3:05:00 before the end of the year so I can relax and run Boston as a party race and not as a BQ run. Next year I’d like to run my first half marathon in Hilo and a couple of ultra distances.

I’ll also be doing my first triathlon with my friend Brian. Hopefully we can motivate each other to swim. I’ll most likely be racing in a classic Schwinn single speed cruiser. I’ll make sure to put tassels on the handle bars for the race.
