I lied

Of course I did.  Make a statement like "run every day" and then miss two in a row.  I'm still working on this is "for fun" and "stay healthy" and "I don't race anymore."  I mean that's what I want to achieve, but string together 3 weeks of training and your all in.  If I'm honest with myself, I need to run when I can and when I'm banged up I need to rest.  Now it's my hip.  Back to reality.

Which leads me to something I have always considered.  What would be the perfect weekly training regiment for me, right now.  Not someone else and not 10 - 20 - 30 years ago.  The goal would be to get the most out of the least.  Since I don't race short anymore I'd bag speed work...which is nice.  The key would be being able to do it week in and week out.

18 - 10 - 5 - 8 - 13.1 - 8 - 0 = 62.1 (100K)
2:40 - 1:25 - 45 - 1:10 - 2:00 - 1:10 = 9:05

Why wouldn't 9 a day work for 63?  How sweet would that be?  Going on vacation soon, I will try and let you know.

Steve = Did you get hurt?  Sounds like a bunch of the Cheeseheads are going up for the Superior weekend.  I'm from PA originally and you need to live here like 25 years and catch a Muskie to be considered.

  1. 25 years is nothing in my neighborhood. My neighbor complains that I still refer to his house as "Swanson's," even though he's been there 42 years. You have to be second or third generation before you belong.

    I've been seriously ill off-and-on for an entire year and I just don't see being able to put in the time to run long any more (especially since I'm mostly fast-twitch fibers).
