I need to start to ramp up my training for the June 9 Utah Valley Marathon (8 weeks away). I have decided I want to consistently run 40-50 mile weeks from now until then, which is way more than I am used to, but not so much more that I will injure myself or get burned out.
I’m going to keep up with my non-specific “training plan” and go at it week by week with 3 main workouts each week:
- Weekend Long Run
- Tempo Run
- Speed Work
I got a little lazy over the last month and didn’t really have a true tempo run and a true speed workout each week. And it showed during my half this past weekend. I guess I should be a little more serious about this whole training thing if I want to PR.
I also think I need to hit the track for the speed work. I did this consistently before my last marathon and actually enjoyed it. I just need to find a track near my house….. I found a dirt track that should work. Maybe by posting these “goals” I will actually follow through with training. Wish me luck!
