Phase One: week 2 of 5

Not a whole lot going on racing wise this week. Just a bunch of foolish people on bikes - not that I would ever participate in anything like that.

Anyways - although last week was "week 1" of the 24 week plan this week is the first real step up in mileage - and I add in both strides and a longer run. But, the legs feel very fresh and relaxed - it will feel good to take it up a small notch. I'm going to be in Georgia and North Carolina this week for a wedding and to see my sister and brother-in-law respectively. I'm taking Friday off with the hope to run a little on the Appalachian Trail in the Smoky Mountains. Last time I went there I saw a bear just off the path. It's a pretty incredible place.

Last week
Monday: 7 miles
Tuesday: 6 miles
Wednesday: 4 miles
Thursday: 8 miles
Friday: 0 miles
Saturday: 6 miles
Sunday: 9 miles
Total: 40 miles

This week
Monday: 6 miles
Tuesday: 7 miles 6X100m strides
Wednesday: 10 miles
Thursday: 4 miles
Friday: 14 miles
Saturday: 6 miles
Sunday: 9 miles
Total: 56 miles

Is it really 24 weeks to Boston? Good luck!

I am starting the Pfitz-5-week recovery plan next week. Hopefully by December I will be rolling again.

Yeah like 24 weeks on the nose, how crazy is that? If you used that book's plan you could do two marathons a year and have about 2 months of just chilling out at some point in the year, assuming you were looking to do a November race and an April race.
