Boston is over, recovery is underway and of course the eyes turn toward what is next. There are some short races planned (5-Peaks, Beaver Chase), but the next Big one is the Green Lakes Endurance run in Fayetteville, New York. (just the 50km).
So training for this will begin the week of May 11th. Friend Heather discovered, what we think, is a pretty good 50km training program, Old Mutual Om Die Dam . Good Hill and speed sessions, but not too aggressive, with some nice long, easy runs.
I have posted the plan in Goggle Docs, tweaked it a bit with trying to work in summer holidays (running in Florida for two weeks will be fun) , and created 2 tabs, 1 for time and 1 for distance. My plan for this cycle is to get off the distance band wagon and focus on time based training. When running trails I think this is more appropriate and it takes the pressure off trying to run harder just to make a certain distance. This is the base plan, there will be double days and FF/barefoot runs thrown in. This is just the "guide". Link to document/plan here
