Let the Training Begin
Yesterday I started my training plan for Boston. I'm calling it the "Modified Pfitzinger Plan." It's basically the Pfitzinger Advanced Marathoning plan, but I've modified some of the mileage and some of the runs. I ran 6 miles yesterday with 10 X 100m strides. The 6 miles was hard as I was trying to run it around an 8:00 pace. I didn't quite make that, but it's early in the training. Halfway through my run, though, I did see and talk to a friend of mine from high school. I love small town America! My 10 X 100m strides were awesome. I was a sprinter in high school and sometimes I really miss the speed. So in total, I clocked 7.25 miles yesterday in 1:00:40. I'm having to rearrange my schedule this week to fit all my runs due to a track coach's clinic later this week. I'll keep you posted on how it all goes.
