Cruise Control

At his point of my training I am now on cruise control. There will be no speed workouts, no hill workouts or trail running. I will run on routes that I am familar with and hazard free. They will include hills and flats however the pace will be pretty consistent at what I hope to be my marathon pace. It's going to be just cruising along and enjoying the ride.

This weeks training schedule was interrupted by weather. I chose not to run in the rain on Saturday. After having two off days in a row I chose to change up the schedule and postpone my last long run until Wednesday. Today’s run would have been 16 miles, so that is what I will do on Wednesday.

I am working on my training plan for the remaining days following my Wednesday LSD. At the moment I plan on Thursday as an off day. I will follow with 2, 6, & 12 miles the Friday to Sunday. Monday will be an off day. Two short runs than on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday will be travel and an off day. I will most likely run a quick 2 miles on Friday just to loosen up the legs a bit. Basically the only item that I think might change is I may run up to 16 again this Sunday.

I feel that I am ready for this marathon and confident that I will be able to complete it comfortably. The weather is basically my only concern.

Looking forward to showtime.
