My new well used schedule of training for the St Geo Marathon starts today.Everything is up for change or not. My basic progressive daily/weekly training schedule looks like this:  

Monday: Rest with stretching & strength training.  

Tuesday: sorta long run day, at my own chosen pace and distance.     

Wednesday: Low mile run w/ stretching & strength training .   

Thursday: Hill w/o’s, Tempo w/o’s, Interval w/o’s, Yasso’s, “Quality not Quality “!

Friday: Rest, stretching &  minimal strength training. That’s it - Rest.    

Saturday: 5 or more Running miles @ Marathon Pace. Hard to do but stick with the plan!

Sunday: Long Distance Run @ 45 to 90 seconds slower than MP. 

 That’s it for the next 21 weeks....

3 aerobic miles as a warm up and a full body workout at the gym. I feel like my Running and w/o’s have really helped get my recovery from Boston under control. Now I hope I will be ready for my annual Nestle 5k. I’ve got to defend ranking in my age division!
