Howdy Folks,

The jetlag as surpassed (for the most part), my body is fully rested and thus, I took advantage of the leap day by leaping into the next training cycle. The next segment of training will jump off from my kick start of racing into running shape with a cycle that creates consistency in each week to compound to make the race weeks seem easier. The weeks will look like this:

  • Monday: DAY OFF
  • Tuesday: Long run with pack 15-20 miles depending on the week in the cycle
  • Wednesday: 2nd Long run without pack (10-12 miles)
  • Thursday: AM speed / tempo work (up to 8 miles), PM 3 mile shake out fun run (in the summer ending with ice cream or a smoothie)
  • Friday: Long run with pack 15-20 miles depending on the week in the cycle
  • Saturday: 2nd Long run without pack (10-12 miles)
  • Sunday: AM speed / tempo work (up to 8 miles), PM 3 mile shake out fun run (in the summer ending with ice cream or a smoothie)

I will also squeeze in a hut trip to BC as well as, NYC half marathon and the Grand Traverse skimo race. #bringiton

Cheers,

JAX
