I have much to write about, and have much intention of actually spelling it all out, but so much has happened–an injured knee, a car accident, and all kinds of busy work that is keeping me from jotting down all the thoughts running through my achy head. I will be back (Arnold-style).

The 2009 6@6 Club Marathon Training Plan
September 10, 2009, 8:24 am
Filed under: Running | Tags: , , , ,

Marathon training has officially begun, two weeks ago. Our goal this year is to PR, beating the 4:30 time. To do so, we need to run about a 10:07 pace for the entire 26.2. Our speedwork pace felt easy to me, I was still able to talk so it is probably time to speed up a bit. What concerns me about this training plan that we are following is that it has us running at 10:58 pace even up to the last training long run but all of a sudden expects a 10:07 pace on race day. Is that realistic? Can adrenaline sustain 26 miles?

I need to consult a running coach on this. It shall be tweaked. But here it is:
