One Week Down

So I made the training plan, but ran nothing like what it was supposed to be.  The training plan was for some hill repeats, Fartlek, and some runs.  What I did was some 400s at 1:20s and 800s in low 3:05 on the track (Smoked it). Some mile repeats at 7:05, 7:03, 8:33 pace. And a long run of 7 miles at 9:00 pace.  I did get in some weights.  So it was a total of almost 17 miles.  

I have more of the same planned for this week but I have stared off with two BLANKS in the morning.  I did manage 3 miles yesterday evening.  I guess I will make a long one or something on Thursday, a run on Friday, and not sure about Saturday.  I might have to make a run on Sunday just to get some miles.  

I have a plan but don't see that it is remotely being followed.  I think I need to go back to the drawing board.

20 Weeks Till The Louisiana Half Marathod

This is Why I Run
The Louisiana Half Marathon is 20 weeks away!  The training program will be begin but I have to figure out what the program is going to be.  I am revisiting my "Brain Training for Runner" and might combine it with "FIRST" training.  Some of the other runners will do the "FIRST" training so it might be easier to get something done vs. doing it by myself.  We shall see how that goes.
