Weekly Training Plan (Revised)
I've revised my weekly training plan. The last 3-4 weeks have gone well with me doing three quality workouts, plus one regular easy run. Tuesday and Thursday are speed type workouts--tempo, intervals, progression, hills, fartlek, etc. Saturday is the long run and Sunday is a moderate length easy run. M-W-F are all "off" days for full recovery. I enjoy this schedule. It seems to be making me faster. Not sure it has enough miles to completely develop my endurance and aerobic capacity for ultramarathons, but it may work.
I have a 5-hour club "fun run" this Saturday (June 22) on a tough trail. If that goes well, I am confident this schedule will have me ready for the 8-hour Howl at the Moon race on August 10.
