Plan B

It was a great run on Sunday with Andrew but 12 miles was all I could manage due to all the problems I've been having lately. Even Andrew appeared concerned about how I'm going to manage to come up with a decent effort for Boston and with time running out, well it's time to get started.

My orginal training plan, posted way back in December has been out the window for over a month now and so I'm now opting for a shortest version of the Pfitzinger plans. 12 weeks on 55 miles a week or less will have to do and it's already 11 weeks to go! Thus far I like it with

Monday - rest

Tues - 8 miles with 4 at 1/2 marathon effort. Did this on the treadmill but only got up to marathon(ish) pace which is now going to be about 7:30-8:00 per mile. The workout went well enough but it was the fastest running I've done for months.

Weds - another rest day! Love those shorter plans! My x-training will be some extra stretching and volleyball later tonite.

Thus - plan for tommorow is 11 miles which I'm expecting to do as an after work - run from work run.

That's all I got. Wish me luck and have a good week.

Plan 'B' sounds fine. I know it's easy for me to say but try not to worry too much. My longest run ths far has only been 2 hours and that was far from easy. We've got 10 good weeks of training left and if nothing else we're rested. Careful not to rush things though.

Good luck! I'm falling back into the Pfit 12/55 plan also. But not sure I'm even going to be able to handle that either.

So that's Plan B for Boston! The extra rest days might perk you up a bit. I'll send a bit of our heat-wave your way :)

Plan B is perfectly sound. Good luck!

Hey Mike,
Plan B sound good! On a different note do you have a digital copy of the ad we placed in the paper after the fathers day race last year? I want to make up a solicitation letter or maybe even a poster/plaque

I think your Plan B looks like a great option, and providing the leg co-operates, will get you there in fine shape.
